MADISON, Wis. -

A Wisconsin Rapids firefighter is pondering a recount after unofficial results from Tuesday's elections show he trails Republican state Representative Scott Krug by just 114 votes.

Justin Pluess said he isn't conceding defeat and he wants to see the official canvass in central Wisconsin's 72nd Assembly District before he makes a decision on a recount. He said he wants to make sure every vote counts.

As things stand now, Pluess' recount would be cost him nothing because the margin separating the candidates is less than half a percent.

Krug, who also hails from Wisconsin Rapids, said Pluess might pick up a few votes here or there in a recount but he can't make up a 114-vote margin.
