MILWAUKEE (AP) - Voters in Wisconsin’s largest metropolitan area returned the two highest-ranking officials to their jobs.

Mayor Tom Barrett, who twice ran for governor as a Democrat, turned away a challenge from longtime Alderman Bob Donovan in a race that became bitter and personal. Barrett beat Donovan 70 percent to 30 percent with all precincts reporting.

In the race for Milwaukee County executive, Chris Abele (AY’-blee) was re-elected to a second full four-year term with 56 percent of the vote to Sen. Chris Larson’s 44 percent in unofficial returns.

Abele ran a close second to Larson in February’s four-way primary.
