State Senate District 18 race still not decided

Election winner Rick Gudex waits to see if he'll be heading to Madison as state senator for District 18.
Fond du Lac, Wis.(WFRV)--Election day wasn't enough time to decide the 18th State Senate district race between incumbent Democrat Jessica King and GOP challenger Rick Gudex 
    Election results show Gudex defeated King by a margin of just 590 votes.
    Because it's so close, King has decided not to concede.
    She's considering asking for a recount, but will wait until the county clerks in Fond du Lac, Winnebago and Dodge Counties - and the Government Accountability Board - are done canvassing.
    That means, it could take almost two weeks to declare a winner.
    If a recount happens, it could cost taxpayers in those three counties more than 26-thousand dollars.
    Local Five's Donald Robinson has the story.
