Early Milwaukee results are in

Early returns are coming in in some contested Milwaukee-area races.

Dan Kohl is leading a four-way Dem primary to fill the 22nd Assembly District on Milwaukee's north side. Dem Rep. Sheldon Wasserman opted to run for the Senate rather than seek re-election. With 24 percent reporting, Kohl had 38 percent, Sandy Pasch, 31 percent; Andy Feldman, 28 percent; and Guy Johnson, 3 percent.

In the 24th AD, Randy Melchert was leading a four-way Republican primary for the seat being vacated by GOP Rep. Suzanne Jeskewitz. With 25 percent reporting, Melchert had 54 percent of the vote, Jason LaSage had 29 percent, Dan Knodl had 12 percent and Moscicke had 5 percent.

Charlene Brady was leading the 24th AD Dem primary. With 25 percent of the vote in, Brady had 63 percent of the vote to Torrey Lauer's 37 percent.

Milwaukee-area Assembly incumbents were faring well in early returns.

With 28 percent reporting, incumbent Rep. Pedro Colon is ahead of his challengers in the 8th AD, with 58 percent of the vote.

Tom Reynolds's Clean Sweep PAC, has 18 percent.

Incumbent Leon Young is holding a narrow lead with 17 percent reporting in a four-way 16th AD Dem primary with 38 percent. Andy Parker has 32 percent, while David King has 16 percent and Richard Badger has 14 percent.
