Cruz, Sanders fare better than $49.5 million school plan in heavy voting Tuesday

In extremely heavy voting Tuesday, Ozaukee County voters trounced Donald Trump, picking Ted Cruz over the brash businessman by a 3-to-1 margin in the Republican presidential primary election.

The Democratic presidential primary was much tighter, with county voters favoring Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton by a mere 299-vote margin.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court race was not nearly as close in Ozaukee County, where 65% of voters favored incumbent Rebecca Bradley over Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg, who garnered 35% of the vote. Bradley carried the vote statewide to retain the seat Gov. Scott Walker appointed her to in fall.

Countywide, nearly 69% of registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s election. Turnout was 75% in the Grafton area, where if school officials thought the approval of a $49.4 million referendum in the Port Washington-Saukville School District a year ago meant neighboring voters would follow suit, they were wrong. The Grafton School District’s two-question, $49.5 million referendum was soundly defeated. (See related story on page 6B.)
