Pasch Cleans Up in Shorewood with Nearly 96 Percent; Thompson Carries Local Vote

With voters only allowed to vote for candidates in one party in Tuesday's partisan primary, at least 65 percent of Shorewood voters chose to vote on the Democratic side.

State Rep. Sandy Pasch held a seat in the Assembly, in large part to how the residents of Shorewood voted in Tuesday’s partisan primary.

She won Shorewood with nearly 96 percent of the vote over Democratic challengers Millie Coby of Shorewood, and Ieshuh Griffin and Harriet Callier of Milwaukee.

According to unofficial results from Village Clerk Sherry Grant, Pasch garnered 2,060 votes, to Coby’s 79 votes, or roughly 3 percent.

Griffin received 4 votes and Callier 5.

Voter turnout on Tuesday was 32 percent.

Over in the U.S. Senate Republican primary, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson led the way with 43 percent or 437 votes to businessman Eric Hovde’s nearly 29 percent or 292 votes in Shorewood. State Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald garnered 158 votes or 15 percent and former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann received 120 votes or almost 12 percent.

Tuesday’s primary limited voters to casting their ballots for candidates in one party. At least 65 percent of those casting ballots decided to vote on the Democratic side.

All results are deemed unofficial until election officials canvass later this week.

She doesn't even live in the district, she can't be the incumbent...

Semantic distortion if one lives in Shorewood.

Wow.Woman of letters. No wonder you support Sandy.

On twitter I saw that Ieshhu Griffin is suing Pasch and others in federal court for election fraud. I think she has a good point, how Pasch was able to run is still mind boggling to myself and others.

Hmmm... Shorewood voted for a white carpetbagger vs a slew of african-american challengers that actually live in the district. I honestly can't say that I'm shocked, but I am wondering how Schmitzy can stand living in such a clearly racist Democratic community as Shorewood
