Thanks to all of you who helped make it happen.
Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- This was a good week for liberty.
Why? Because one of America’s most outspoken, pro-gun sheriffs defeated attempts by an anti-gun liberal Mayor who tried to take him out.
David Clarke, Jr., is the Sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
He is a true patriot and has run public service ads saying things like:
- “Simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option…. Consider taking a certified safety course in handling of firearms, so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family.”
- “Wisconsin’s [concealed carry law] now gives you the same advantage that I have. Now it’s the crook who has to wonder what you might do. It can be a great equalizer….”
GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt personally awarded the “High Noon Award” to Sheriff Clarke last year for “standing for truth when others run, and for telling the truth even though politically incorrect.”
For all these reasons, it’s no wonder that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hates him so much.
Bloomberg, who is a billionaire, poured $150,000 into the sheriff’s race in Milwaukee, trying to unseat him in his primary this past Tuesday.
But Daddy Warbucks’ money couldn’t buy an election in Milwaukee County, as Clarke won by a comfortable 52-48 percent margin.
GOA’s Political Victory Fund rallied gun owners in the state of Wisconsin to contribute to Sheriff Clarke’s campaign. And GOA’s Facebook page made gun owners around the country aware of this important race.
