As we previously reported, outside interests, including former New York City Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun super PAC, donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in an effort to unseat Sheriff David Clarke Jr, an outspoken Second Amendment supporter.

However, those efforts proved to be in vain as Clarke won the Democratic primary for sheriff handily.

According to,

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. edged Milwaukee police Lt. Chris Moews early Wednesday in a Democratic primary race that drew national attention and more than $600,000 in outside spending.

With all but 6,000 city of Milwaukee absentee ballots counted, Clarke led by more than 4,700 votes. Moews would need nearly 5,400 of those absentee ballots to fall his way, which experts quickly dismissed as impossible.

Shortly before midnight, Moews refused to concede. And shortly thereafter, Clarke told supporters he felt good about his chances but would not declare victory until all ballots were counted.

“We like where we’re standing right now,” he said.

Keep spending your money Mike. It seems to be doing a lot of good.
