State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary.

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - As Thanksgiving gets closer, you'll find something to be thankful for at the grocery store. 

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner has gone down for the second year in a row. 

The Farm Bureau said the price of a dozen food items in 21 cities dropped about one-percent from last year, to 48-dollars-and-40-cents.  That includes things like the turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, buttered rolls, relishes, beverages -- and of course, pumpkin pie. 

The new decrease comes on the heels of a three-and-a-half percent price drop in 2012. 

The Farm Bureau said 2011 was the highest price for a Thanksgiving dinner since the group began its surveys in 1992. 

The bureau's Amy Manske said the amount of turkeys in cold storage were at historic lows a couple years ago -- and that's why prices jumped.  Since then, they've stabilized. 

The average turkey price dropped almost three-and-a-half percent from 2011.
