Milwaukee COUNTY municipal elections are nonpartisan. Political affiliation is not given. Clark claims to be a Democrat, but he attends Republican conventions and spouts Republican platforms. He runs at the county level which has a lot of the very white conservative areas that adjoin the very white conservative segregated burbs that tightly ring the city of Milwaukee. We also have a multimillionaire inherited wealth county executive that is hard to distinguish from a Republican. Remember that Scott KochRoach Walker was Milwaukee county exec. before he became governor and is horribly right wing.
We would be very happy if Trump extracted both of them and took them off to Washington D.C. Good riddance.
