The race took on national tones just last week when Mr. Bloomberg — who helps head the Mayors Against Illegal Guns group and who has taken up a personal crusade to scale back Second Amendment rights — threw in $150,000 to defeat Sheriff Clarke. That amount was more than what Sheriff Clarke and his opponent, Chris Moews, spent on their entire campaigns, The Post reported.
I just love a little bit of good news on “Hump Day.” Don’t you? It’s inspiring to see the voice of the people resonate in spite of meddling from the likes of Michael Bloomberg. In his crusade to buy his way into Heaven by sending gun rights to Hell, Bloomberg was handed a full on defeat by the people of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
Chris W. Cox, Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action issued this statement: “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, we would like to congratulate Sheriff David A. Clarke on his hard fought victory in yesterday’s Primary election for Milwaukee County Sheriff. Sheriff Clarke’s outspoken commitment to the Second Amendment earned him the admiration of NRA members and gun owners nationwide. His dedication to freedom and the Constitution also earned him the wrath of gun control elitist Michael Bloomberg and his allies, who spent over half a million dollars (more money than both candidates in this race combined) trying to defeat Sheriff Clarke. But in the end, Bloomberg’s money could not buy the hearts and minds of the voters.”
