You’d think that at some point Michael Bloomberg would tire of unproductively flushing his cash down anti-gun electoral ratholes. Then again, when you’re worth $33 billion, blowing $150,000 on a futile effort to defeat a midwestern pro-gun sheriff is a little like you or me discovering we lost $20 through a hole in our pocket.
It may be annoying, but it won’t affect his lifestyle in the slightest. Just like former Mayor Mike’s failed efforts to prop up anti-gun legislators in Colorado who’d supported his gun control agenda.
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, with support from sources like the NRA and Wisconsin’s former GOP Governor Tommy Thompson, beat back the bilious billionaire’s big bucks, as well as large opposing ad buys by other local and national left-leaning orgs in defeating anti-gun stooge, Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews.
jsonline.com reports that Clarke, a vocal gun rights supporter, has won today’s primary vote by a margin of 52-48% (pending absentee ballots). In a one-party town like Milwaukee, winning the Democrat primary virtually assures Clarke a fourth term in office.
Chalk it up as one more win at the polls for the pro-gun rights agenda, and another black eye – however minor – for the malevolent miniature mayor.
