Description Bidwell was declared the winner by a 19 vote margin on election night. The recount started the day after the election and continued for three weeks. Two days after the election, Sauk County uncovered 64 votes for Feingold that had not been counted on election night. The lead see-sawed back in forth until the very end. When all the votes had been recounted Feingold defeated Bidwell by just 31 votes.
