Election factiod

Voters were much more interested in the Milwaukee County sheriff's race, in which incumbent David Clarke destroyed Republican opponent Don Holt, than they were in the Milwaukee County district attorney's race, where Assistant DA John Chisholm destroyed independent Lew Wasserman.

Clarke and Holt received a combined total of 297,095 votes, which is 45,182 or 18% more than the combined total of 251,913 votes that Chisholm and Wasserman got, according to the JS. The sheriff's results were based on 99% of returns counted and the DA results were based on 98% of returns counted, but it's unlikely that 1% difference has much impact on the interest gap.
