“Mil­wau­kee County Sher­iff Dav­id Clarke on Thursday left the door open to a Sen­ate bid, say­ing the odds of him run­ning are “less than 50 per­cent.” However, in his new book, called “Cop Un­der Fire,” Clarke says he is not run­ning for Sen­ate.

He wrote, “I have no in­terest in run­ning for elec­ted of­fice oth­er than be­ing sher­iff. I’m not run­ning for may­or, I’m not run­ning for con­gress­man, I’m not run­ning for sen­at­or, and I’m not run­ning for gov­ernor.”

In the Thursday in­ter­view, he said, “I nev­er say nev­er; I haven’t totally closed the door, but I think it’s less than 50 per­cent that I’d run for the Sen­ate.” (Wis­con­sin State Journ­al/FOX 6)
