Tim Kabat and Doug Farmer will move on to the April general election for mayor of La Crosse. Kabat gained the most votes of all candidates in Tuesday primary voting, collecting over 26 hundred. Farmer gained 14 hundred votes, more than double the next highest vote-getter, former state senate candidate, Bill Feehan who received less than six hundred. Of the eleven candidates, Craig Nestor received the fewest.
Tim Kabat takes an early lead in vote-counting for mayor of La Crosse. In early results, the former assistant city planner was leading runner-up Doug Farmer by a 2-1 margin. Recent State Senate candidate Bill Feehan was a distant third in the 11-man race. The top two candidates will face off in the April general election.
