Wisconsin Sen. Lena Taylor will challenge Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the April 7 general election. Both candidates advanced in yesterday’s primary election, with Barrett receiving 50% of the vote and Taylor claiming 31%, according to TMJ4.

South Side Ald. Tony Zielinski, who campaigned in part on opposition to the streetcar, fell short with 16%. Zielinski is not running again for his aldermanic seat.

“Thank you to all my constituents for giving me the ‘great honor’ of serving them for 32 years,” Zielinski posted on Facebook. “I will forever be grateful. I am excited about the new opportunities that are available to me.”

In other election results from yesterday, Jill Karofsky will face off against incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly, and Chris Larson and Davis Crowley will vie to replace outgoing Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele.
