Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's dollars have been defeated again, this time in Wisconsin. Despite Bloomberg dumping $150,000 into the Democrat primary for Milwaukee County Sheriff on behalf of anti-gun Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews with a goal of defeating pro-self defense incumbent Sheriff David Clarke, Clarke was victorious last night. Clarke defeated Moews 52 percent to 48 percent. The race was called Wednesday morning after results were too close to call Tuesday night. Here are Clarke's remarks from last night, before the race was called this morning.

So the pubbies supported the black guy, and the dems supported the white guy. Sounds like this should be national news!

Oh wait, never mind. The black guy is pro-self-defense...

Through all of this campaign Clarke did not play the race card. He is class.

From what I can see he was running on the "content of his character".

Another win for the good guys...

Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews - the loser in this race - is a Democrat of the wild eyed uber-liberal persuasion - not a Republican. All Milwaukee Republicans would have voted for Sheriff Clarke.

Bloomberg and the tyrannical Left’s worst nightmare: A black, Christian, Pro 2A lawman. God bless him.

Yeah imagine that, especially with the Republicans being called racist by the left

Heard this guy on Beck yesterday. So glad he won, since he is instructing his constituents to protect themselves and not rely on the police to be there in an emergency.

Funny that I did not realize, through just hearing his voice, that he was black. Maybe all candidates for office should just be heard on the radio, not seen on TV. That would stop most of the voting based only on physical characteristics. Wouldn’t work in the case of gender, but hilLIARy does have a masculine voice LOL.
