MADISON, Wis. — Tuesday night in Milwaukee County saw a huge victory for the First and Second amendments, and a stunning defeat of the left’s big money dump and its hypocritical “dark money” mantra.

Milwaukee County conservative Sheriff David Clarke’s defeat (52-48 percent) of Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews in Tuesday’s primary election was a blow to liberals, particularly former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg’s gun-control Independence USA super PAC dropped $150,000 into the race on a TV ad campaign attacking the Democrat Clarke’s controversial pro-gun positions. Bloomberg’s political action committee, which has said it will spend $50 million on anti-gun politics in 2014, outspent the Clarke and Moews campaigns combined.
