All that money spent and Sullivan still almost defeats Abele

2

Despite spending much more than the other candidates for Milwaukee County Executive, leftwing philanthropist Chris Abele was only able to finish second in the primary with 25% of the vote. Former Democratic State Senator Jim Sullivan almost caught Abele with 22% of the vote.

Meanwhile, Republican State Representative Jeff Stone was able to bring home 43% of the vote. That’s not a good sign for liberals hoping to take back Milwaukee County government in the post-Scott Walker era.

Perhaps the voters have formed an opinion of Abele similar to Gertrude Stein’s opinion of Oakland. “There is no there there.”
