See Which Areas Went for Abele

The co exec racked up the widest margins in River Hills and Franklin.

 

County executive Chris Abele came away Tuesday with a sweeping victory in the suburbs, chasing challenger Chris Larson into his apparent stronghold of Shorewood. Even Milwaukee went to the incumbent, who lost by four points in the primary.

Abele performed best in the North Shore and in the suburbs on the far southern end of the county. But unlike Sheriff David Clarke, who followed a similar blueprint of rounding up suburban votes, Abele still captured the more urban communities like Wauwatosa and West Milwaukee.
