Tom Barrett didn't manage to get 50 percent of the vote in the mayoral primary.
Not looking too strong.
With 100 percent of the precincts in, Barrett finished with 46 percent of the vote. Donovan followed with 33 percent. Alderman Joe Davis had 19 percent, followed by James Methu with 3 percent.
Barrett is running for a fourth term. He said he will work hard to lure voters who supported Davis in the primary.
He has won the last two mayoral elections with more than 70 percent of the vote.
Crime is a key issue in this race, but the April election will also be a presidential primary and will draw a bigger crowd to the polls, which insiders say favors Barrett.
Milwaukee residents would be crazy to reelect Barrett.
I would hope Joe Davis supporters would continue to want to unseat Barrett and stand with Donovan.
Voters should overwhelming choose change.
The city's crime problem needs to be addressed.
Bob Donovan appears to sincerely want to help improve the city. Without question, he is the choice for mayor.
Milwaukee residents should not be content with Barrett and the status quo. Time for change.
