Not the big prize, but a decent consolation prize, should the results stand. Senate power shifts to Dems as Lehman narrowly defeats Wanggaard Control of the state Senate appeared to have been wrested from Republican control early Wednesday as late results showed former state Sen. John Lehman beating incumbent Sen. Van Wanggaard by less than 1,000 votes. With all wards reporting, Lehman came out on top with 36,255 votes to Wanggaard's 35,476 in preliminary returns. It was unclear early Wednesday if there would be a recount of the vote. Lehman declared victory, although Wanggaard refused to concede, saying he will review the results.
