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 56.8 percent of the vote to Moews' 52.1.
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.

BTW, I've read that Clarke's margin was "razor thin". What, exactly, did the media call it when Obummer won with 51% in 2012? I don't remember it being referred to as a "razor thin" margin.
Somebody should remind Bloomberg of that Einstein quote: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Bloomberg and allied anti-gun crazies spent $625,000.00 to try to unseat Democrat Sheriff David Clarke - blanketing attack ads around the clock.
From Fox News: Clarke, who is running as a Democrat but regularly aligns himself with conservative Republicans, spoke at the National Rifle Associations annual meeting in April. The NRA, who calls Clarke a rising national star, has come to Clarkes defense, soliciting donations from its members on his behalf and buying online ads for his re-election bid.
Make no mistake: Sheriff Clarke is fighting the reelection battle of his life right now because he dared to stand on principle by standing up for you, me and the NRA, Chris Cox, executive director of the NRAs Institute for Legislative Action, said.
Am I big on a persons right to be able to defend themselves? Yes. You know why? Because its a natural right, Clarke recently told Wisconsin News Radio 620 WTMJ.
I’m glad the anti-gun crazies are blowing their wads of cash - but damn - that’s a lot of cash to throw into a Sheriff’s race.
Common Core math?
108% is perfectly normal for Chicago.
Voter IDs? We don’t need no stinkin’ IDs.
Typo. The article says 52 to 48.
Typo. Article at source says 52 to 48.
A couple of weeks ago I told one of the big lefties at work that I had made a record sized campaign contribution, 4 times my normal amount and it was to a democrat. He was all happy until I told him which democrat!
Had to be a democrat election to come out with those percentage numbers.
Next time I see my neighbor though I want to tell him that it is a good think he didn't have one of his wimpy little 9mm; that would have been embarrassing.
Only in a Democrat primary could the vote count be 108.9% and be reported as such without the slightest bit of self-conciseness. They’re Democrats, what else can we expect?
LOL! That’s a funny story.
Clarke is one of those guys who just ‘gets it’ - you got to like that.
Common Core strikes again!
I heard that in Chicago, 6 out of 5 voters voted for Obama!
