Sec. of State: La Follette Re-Elected
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug La Follette has won re-election to the office he's held for nearly 30 years.
The 70-year-old Democrat had faced a challenge from 49-year-old Republican David King.
But King's campaign ran into trouble when a woman filed a civil lawsuit against him last week, claiming he got her pregnant when she was too drunk to consent to having sex.
King runs a street ministry called the Milwaukee God Squad.
He filed for bankruptcy in 2003 but said during his campaign that people shouldn't not vote for him because he had stopped paying his bills.
La Follette has been secretary of state since 1982 and served one term before that.
