MONROE - Todd Novak declared victory at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, saying he won Assembly District 51 by just 59 votes. It was a tight race between Novak and his main opponent Dick Cates, with results see-sawing throughout the evening. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, preliminary numbers show Cates, a Spring Green farmer, and Novak, the mayor of Dodegville, nearly tied at 47 percent, with a mere one-quarter of one percent difference.
