MADISON, Wis. -

A Wisconsin state Assembly primary race in Waukesha County with five Republicans in the running is too close to call.

Based on preliminary totals from Tuesday's primary, window cleaning business owner Adam Neylon is ahead of Village of Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann by just 30 votes.

There is no automatic recount in Wisconsin, but Baumann can request one within three days after the vote totals have been verified by Waukesha County election officials.

Neylon had 2,003 votes compared with 1,973 for Baumann.

The winner faces no Democratic opposition and will take the 98th Assembly District seat barring an unlikely write-in campaign.

The other three candidates were Jeanne Tarantino, the former chief of staff to Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, graduate student Matt Morzy, and construction project manager Todd Greenwald.
