Default Bloomberg loses in Wisconsin

Once again, Bloomberg poured money into the anti-gun side and lost. Even the Republicans are in favor of the Democratic candidate.

J,

When is Bloomberg and his idiots going to realize that his position does not represent the majority of Americans! As we know the East Coast is already starting to hurt severely due to thier idiotic and un-Constitutional views.
Thats OK Tennessee and other states will take all the gun manufacturing plants and businesses, as they presently are doing. So Mr. Bloomberg and your cronies can go "FO"! And Congrats to Sheriff Clark for standing up for the American citizens and the Second Amendment. There are a majority of officers out there that feel the same way. The liberal socialists running our government at the present would like you to think otherwise but I know better.

There was no republican candidate in the election. The NRA was advising it's republican members to step across party lines to support Sheriff Clarke which is legal in WI. I got this information by simply reading the article that the OP posted.

Bloomberg is making enemies and rallying support from out of state everywhere he gets involved. The exact amount of out of state support sherrif Clarke got is not mentioned. But he was greatly outspent by his opposition. Moews received $400,000 in supportive TV and radio advertising and $150,000 from Bloomberg.

Just out of curiosity, How is it that a Law Enforcement Officer is affiliated with a Political Party? Should the Sheriff be Beholden to a Political Party or the the Law and his citizens?

I've often wondered the same thing. I can't recall ever living in a county anywhere where the Sheriff did not run as a political candidate. Many of us hold the view that politicians, especially career politicians, are 'owned' by a group of interests, whether they be corporations, donors or special interests.

I am in that camp. But his behavior says "FU*K YOU!" to most liberals, and that gets him my respect right off the bat. I mean, a black guy running on a NRA position has got to infuriate the powers that be in the DNC

Sheriff's are elected and are subjected to campaigning so party affiliation could be beneficial.

Elitists such as His Self Worshiping Importantness KNOW the majority of Americans do not support their radicalism--but they keep chipping away. Look at the HUNDREDS of young boys now listed FOR LIFE as dangerous because some teacher, some counselor, some busybody listed them as Dangerous/Neurotic for playing cops and robbers or some such terroristic game. These people are patient and determined little progressive/radical activist; we must be patient and determined patriots and freemen.

Can't say they do but the MSM and the political parties label them for the public consumption. Even in the local elections the coverage puts a D or an R after their names as the results come in.

Even the nominated judges are promoted this way.......

Bloomberg doesn't care if nobody supports him - he knows best and that is all there is to it. Remember, this is a guy who stated in an interview that IF there is a God, he has already earned his place in heaven, won't even stop at the Pearly Gates for an interview with St Peter. He truly, honestly doesn't give one smelly rats patoot about anyone's opinion other than his own. He was born about 500 years too late - he would have been an excellent baron or duke - he has the attitude down pat.
