Sheriff Clarke has a Dem primary opponent -- for 2014

Sheriff David Clarke, a rabid right-wing conservative who runs as a Democrat because that's the only way he could elected in Milwaukee County, survived a strong primary challenge last fall, winning with only 53% of the vote.

Chris Moews (pictured), a Milwaukee police lieutenant who ran against him, is already mounting a campaign for the 2014 primary, the next time Clarke has to face the voters (provided his ego doesn't take over and convince him to run for mayor or county executive or president.)

Moews (pronounced Moews) has a campaign and page, and has scheduled a fundraiser for next week, almost three years before the election.

If you want to get in on the ground floor, it's Tuesday, Oct. 11, 5pm – 7pm, at Brocach Irish Pub, 1850 N. Water St., Milwaukee.  Sponsors include State Sen. Lena Taylor, County Supervisors Nikiya Harris, Theo Lipscomb and John Weishan, and former Milwaukee County Sheriff Lev Baldwin.  It's a 40th birthday celebration for Moews.
