The results are now set in stone, and 28-year-old Adam Neylon is still the winner in the 98th Assembly District.
The speculation and intrigue in the state’s 98th Assembly District election have officially been put to rest – literally. On Wednesday, Waukesha County Clerk Kathleen Novack finished canvassing the vote count and posted the official results from the Feb. 19 election. Although there was much ado about the floating absentee ballots last week, the outcome was unchanged. Adam Neylon will still take the seat vacated by state Sen. Paul Farrow in December. However, former Pewaukee Police Chief did trim his 30-vote margin to 29, according to the official results. The official results are as follows: Official results Before the official results were posted, there was some speculation that roughly 160 outstanding absentee ballots could sway the …

Former Police Chief Ed Baumann needed more than 30 absentee ballots delivered to clerk's offices Friday to have a chance at flipping the results in the 98th Assembly District race, but that total fell well short.
Speculation that roughly 160 outstanding absentee ballots could alter the outcome of the 98th Assembly District election was put to rest Friday afternoon. On Tuesday, 28-year-old entrepreneur Adam Neylon edged former Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann by 30 votes to represent the 98th Assembly District. The Republican primary election essentially determined the successor to Sen. Paul Farrow, who vacated the seat in December. There are no Democrats running for the seat, so Neylon will run unopposed in April. With just 30 votes separating Baumann and Neylon, several media outlets reported that those outstanding ballots could swing the election. But that speculation was put to bed after the mail was delivered Friday. Just 12 of the 159 …

There are still 159 absentee ballots outstanding in the 98th Assembly District race, but it's unlikely that those will change the result of Tuesday's election.
In the topsy-turvy landscape that is Election Day in Waukesha County, Tuesday’s 98th Assembly District followed suit with its own twists and turns. On Election Day, 28-year-old Republican Adam Neylon claimed a slim victory over former Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann in the race for Sen. Paul Farrow’s vacated sat. Neylon clipped Baumann by just 30 votes, and speculation has arisen whether 159 outstanding absentee ballots could turn the tide in favor of Baumann. However, those waves could merely be ripples. A total of 159 absentee ballots are still outstanding in the Village of Pewaukee, Pewaukee, Sussex, and Waukesha. However, of those 159 ballots, just 10 have been returned to their respective clerk’s offices. In order to be counted, …
