Jailed alderman wins district primary
by UPI

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Alderman Michael McGee Jr. finished first, but didn't avoid a runoff, in his district's primary election despite being in jail for conspiracy charges.

McGee faces state charges in May for allegedly conspiring with two other individuals to assault a teenager. He would lose his Common Council seat if found guilty of the charges, forcing another election.

McGee won 32 percent of the vote Tuesday in a non-partisan field that included eight other candidates. He advances to the April 1 general election against attorney Milele Coggs, who received 22 percent of the vote, results posted Wednesday by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel showed.

McGee ran his re-election campaign from jail, where he is being held without bond.
