Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Clarke remains the favorite for Sheriff

Over at Watchdog Milwaukee, John-David Morgan scribes about the breakdwon of support for Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and challenger Vince Bobot in the recent Democratic primary. In short, Clarke cleaned up on the north side while Bobot carried the east side, downtown, and the south side of the city.

Clarke's Republican opponent in the general election is Don Holt of the Wisconsin State Patrol. Morgan makes a good case that Clarke is the likely winner in the general election. He has attracted support from local Republicans, but continues to run as a Democrat despite his refusal to officially join the party. The most interesting results from the November 7th election may be how many Republicans cross over for Clarke, and how many Dems decide to vote for Holt.
