Democratic 10th District Senate candidate Shelly Moore is the winner of the recall primary election. With all but three of 113 precincts reporting, Moore holds a 17,779-15,245 lead as of 10:15 p.m.

The three missing precincts are in Dunn County.

Moore won in every county. At about 10:15 p.m. the totals were:

St. Croix 8,325-7,950

Pierce 3,561-2,515

Polk 3,958-3,407

Dunn 1,002-573

Burnett 933-800

Weix, who has run as a Republican in other races, ran against Moore in the Democratic primary in an attempt to gain more campaign time for Republican incumbent Sheila Harsdorf. She was in Madison working on a budget bill during the early weeks of the campaign.

Moore will now face Sen. Harsdorf in the recall election scheduled Aug. 9.
