MILWAUKEE (AP) - A suburban Assembly seat appears to have swung to the Democrat after the city of Wauwatosa discovered that not all its election results had been reported.

Democrat Robyn Vining declared victory Thursday after the updated totals showed her with a 132-vote margin over Republican Matt Adamczyk, out of roughly 33,000 ballots cast.

Wauwatosa said Milwaukee County reported it hadn't received votes from two wards. The updated and verified totals gave Vining a net gain of 153 votes, enough to push her into the lead in the tight race.

Adamczyk said he would wait until an official canvass is completed to decide whether to pursue a recount.

If the result is confirmed for Vining, it would leave Republicans with a 63-36 edge in the chamber.
