MADISON, Wis. -

A recount will not be requested in the state Assembly Republican primary race narrowly won by Pewaukee window cleaning business owner Adam Neylon last month.

Neylon finished with 29 votes more than his closest challenger, Village of Pewaukee Police Chief Ed Baumann in the Feb. 19 election. Monday is the deadline for Baumann to request a recount. Baumann says he won't seek one because he doesn't believe the results will change.

That means Neylon will represent the 98th Assembly District barring an unforeseen write-in campaign. No Democrat ran for the seat.

Neylon's name will be the only one on the April 2 ballot.

Final results of the primary were to be certified on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Board.
