Former New York mayor and Liberal busy body Michael Bloomberg is attacking a Wisconsin sheriff known for his strong position on Second Amendment rights, a position at odds with the authoritarian views of New Yorkâ€™s nanny.
The contest is for the position of Milwaukee County Sheriff, one presently held by the constitutionalist David Clarke. Bloomberg dumped more than $150,000 into television ads in an effort to unseat the incumbent. That is more money than both of the campaigns spent combined.
Fortunately, the people of Wisconsin have more sense than Bloomberg has money and even though he has successfully purchased the office of New York City Mayor, he was unable to impact this rural America contest.
Clarke won with 52% of the vote.
The sheriff made a name for himself with his pro-self defense, pro-Second Amendment public service announcements in which he encouraged his citizens to arm themselves.
Heâ€™s a Democrat who aligns himself with Republicans and ran with no Republican challenger.
Bloombergâ€™s failure to purchase this election proves money canâ€™t buy everything; especially, when it goes up against the Constitution and patriotic Americans.
