Greta Neubauer tonight beat out Racine Ald. John Tate to win the Dem primary for outgoing Rep. Cory Mason’s seat.
Neubauer, who won 1,518 votes to Tate’s 1,301, according to unofficial results from the Racine County clerk’s office, will go unopposed in the Jan. 16 general election.
Neubauer in a video posted to her campaign Facebook page said she was looking forward to continue fighting for strong public schools and clean drinking water. She also took jabs at Gov. Scott Walker and President Trump, saying politicians at the state and national level “are not representing Racine right now.”
“This is a critical moment for us to say very clearly and definitively that we deserve better and to start fighting for that here and everywhere in all the communities and all the places we ground ourselves,” she said.
Neubauer, who logged a significant fundraising edge on Tate in her pre-primary campaign finance report with donations from former U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, former Dane County Exec Kathleen Falk and former Gov. Tony Earl, would be unopposed on the Jan. 16 general election ballot.
Mason is resigning after being elected Racine mayor this fall.
