Wisconsin: La Crosse City Council President Easily wins recall race
La Crosse City Council President Audrey Kader easily beat back her recall challengers, winning a largest enough total in the primary to head off a general election. Kader got 196 votes (73%), while the other two candidates got 42 and 26 votes.
Wisconsin is the only state that has a primary, however, if one candidate gets an absolute majority of the vote in the primary, than there is no general election.
