Almost two months and around a half million dollar recount later, JoAnne Kloppenburg has conceded:

Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg said Tuesday that she was conceding the Supreme Court race to Justice David Prosser, ending what had been a contentious campaign that culminated in a rare statewide recount.

Kloppenburg made the concession at a Madison news conference just over a week after the state’s Government Accountability Board reported that final count numbers showed Prosser with 7,006 more votes.

She said she had run a campaign that was respectful, honest and fair.

Her decision to concede is expected to pave the way for Prosser to begin a new, 10-year term on Aug. 1.

The state election version of “Dewey defeats Truman” is now in the books.

None of this should come as a surprise, especially to Ms. Kloppenburg, who seemed to realize the inevitable outcome weeks ago but pursued a recount nonetheless (after the question is asked at the 1:30 mark, hum the Final Jeopardy theme song and it’s even funnier):
