NOW: Cavalier Johnson and Bob Donovan move forward in Milwaukee mayoral race

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Cavalier Johnson and Bob Donovan are moving forward in the Milwaukee mayoral race.

Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson has been one of the most visible candidates in this race, both on the campaign trail and on the airwaves.

Johnson was sworn into office almost eight weeks ago, on Dec. 23, as the acting mayor.

Since then, he has used the power of the office to push forward several proposals, like addressing gun safety and reckless driving and attracting state funding.

Donovan served as the District 8 alderman for 20 years. During his time on the Common Council, he served as the chair and a longtime member of the Public Safety Committee.

He also ran for mayor in 2016 but lost to Tom Barrett in the general election.

Donovan decided not to seek reelection for his aldermanic seat in 2020.

"I want to live a significant life, a life that makes a difference in the lives of others. And it probably took me a year to recognize, being retired, that politics and public service is my vocation in life," Donovan said.

The spring election is on Tuesday, April 5, 2022.
