Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos looked to be cruising to an easy victory Tuesday over Democratic challenger Andy Mitchell in the 63rd Assembly District.

Unofficial results listed on report that 71 percent of the vote has been counted. Vos had 12,582 compared to Mitchell’s 6,034.

Vote totals listed on the Racine County website for the Vos-Mitchell race are still missing five polling locations comprised of 17 wards from Mount Pleasant.

Still, numbers on the county’s election page mirror those in the newspaper’s election coverage.

We will update this story when final vote tallies are available.
