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 …

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 are merely 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, absentee …
