MADISON, Wis. -

None of the trailing candidates in four tight legislative races will seek a recount.

The last candidate in question, Democrat Justin Pluess, conceded defeat Wednesday to Republican incumbent Scott Krug in the 72nd Assembly District.

Republican challenger Nancy VanderMeer didn't ask for a recount by a Friday deadline in the 70th Assembly District, allowing Democratic incumbent Amy Sue Vruwink to claim victory.

Democrat Jeff Smith also didn't seek a recount by a Friday deadline in the 93rd Assembly District, which means Republican incumbent Warren Petryk will retain his seat.

Democrat Jessica King conceded defeat last week to Republican challenger Rick Gudex in the 18th Senate District.

That leaves Republicans with a 60-39 majority in the Assembly and an 18-15 advantage in the Senate.
