Chris Abele

Current Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele announced in October 2019 that he would not be seeking reelection. Abele told FOX6 News part of the decision was personal. Abele said in October he just got married -- and was looking forward to spending time with his wife and three daughters. Abele said the politics of the position also played a role in his decision -- so has the "State versus Milwaukee" attitude.

The spring general election and presidential primary are set for Tuesday, April 7.
