FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Former state Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager failed Tuesday to win a School Board seat in her home town of Fond du Lac.
Incumbents Eric Everson and Susan Jones were re-elected, defeating Lautenschlager and Will Jewson for the two board seats.
Lautenschlager had 4,714 votes, and lost by 225 votes to second-place Jones.
Lautenschlager is a former state representative who ran the Justice Department from 2003 through ’06.
She was surprised to do as well as she did, saying there was still backlash from her 2004 conviction for driving drunk in a state car – as well as her involvement with the effort to recall Governor Scott Walker.
