NOW: Tracking interesting races outside of Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- All eyes were on the race for mayor in Milwaukee Tuesday, but there are some other interesting races happening around Southeastern Wisconsin as well. 

Kenosha voters made history tonight by electing their first woman as county executive. Samantha Kerkman won the race by less than 1,000 votes, with 100 percent reporting. 

Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly won by almost 4,000 votes with 100 percent reporting. This will be his third term as mayor. He ran against Lisa Salb.

The Associated Press declared Maria Lazar the winner in the race for Wisconsin Court of Appeals in District 2. Lazar is a Waukesha County Circuit Court judge. 

Lazar's opponent, Lori Kornblum, was appointed to the court in November by Governor Tony Evers. She needed to beat Lazar to keep her seat. Lazar will serve a six year term.

The Mequon-Thiensville School Board race caught a lot of attention in November for a recall election that failed. This time around, four candidates ran for two open seats on the board. Paul Buzzell and Jason Levash received the most votes, with 100 percent reporting.
