I told you the other day about NYC gun-control freak billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to unseat pro-Second Amendment Democrat Sheriff David Clarke in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.

Colorado beat back Bloomberg’s big bucks. And now, Milwaukee County has, too. Congratulations, Sheriff Clarke:

Just after midnight on Wednesday — race results at FOX6Now.com showed 100% of precincts reporting — Clarke with 52% and Moews with 48%.

Later Wednesday morning, the race results at FOX6Now.com showed Clarke marked as the victor in the race — with 59,191 votes (52%). The results showed Moews with 54,549 votes (48%).

Sheriff David Clarke, in an address to the crowd at his election night gathering said he would have more to say later Wednesday.

Chris Moews challenged incumbent Sheriff David Clarke in the Democratic primary.

The race saw a lot of interest and spending from outside groups — questioning Sheriff Clarke’s position on issues like gun control.

Clarke is in his 12th year as Milwaukee County’s Sheriff. At times, he has been a controversial figure.

Clarke cast his ballot in private on Tuesday. His election night party was held at the Brewhouse Inn and Suites. About 50 supporters were expected at the party, along with Sheriff Clarke’s family.

Clarke ran as a Democrat, but is a staunch supporter of Second Amendment rights and is known for his outspoken radio ads.

Clarke was honored in 2013 with the “Sheriff of the Year” award from the Constitutional Sheriff’s and Peace Officers Association.
