MADISON, Wis. — Republican Amy Loudenbeck conceded defeat Monday in her bid to unseat Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug La Follette.

Unofficial results from the Nov. 8 election showed La Follette defeated Loudenbeck by 7,660 votes. The margin was within the 1-percentage-point difference for Loudenbeck to request a recount, but outside the quarter-point gap that would have meant a free recount.
