Sheriff David Clarke Beats Bloomberg's Money, Defeats Anti-Gun Opponent

Sheriff David Clarke Beats Bloomberg's Money, Defeats Anti-Gun Opponent

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Sentinel Journal has Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) defeating challenger Milwaukee police lieutenant Chris Moews by nearly 5 percent.

According to the Sentinel, Clarke garnered 52 percent of the vote to Moews’ 48.

This percentage is slightly less than that with which Clarke won in 2000 — when he beat Moews by six points — but the August 12 victory comes after Michael Bloomberg dumped $150,000 into the race against Clarke.

Other liberal groups, like the Greater Wisconsin Committee, funneled approximately $400,000 into the race against Clarke.

Clarke raised the ire of gun rights opponents in January 2013 when he asked Milwaukee County citizens to get familiar with a firearm they could use to defend their lives during the time that passes between calling 911 and police arrival.
