Six candidates to appear on ballot for Milwaukee County Executive

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After heated debate Tuesday, all six candidates vying to replace outgoing Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele will appear on the spring ballot. 

Initially, three of the campaigns inadvertently had some of the same people collect signatures -- sometimes even on the same day, which is against state election law.

Thrown out signatures would have prevented those candidates from appearing on the ballot.

However, it appeared to be accidental, and there was no evidence of fraud or attempted undue influence. 

Milwaukee County election officials then drew names out of a hat to set the ballot order.
