I most certainly do believe a white sheriff would best represent the interests of the 75%white lake county.The hatelace groupies are stating that the ad placed in the RB by Mitchell's friends has started a dirty campaign. Have they forgotten that their guy went to channel 7 and started the mud slinging based on a race issue? Now that same candidate is saying his criminal record can be explained away because of his race. Nobody except Clint cares what race he is. I generally think that women are smarter than men, but if a woman was to run against Mitchell just based on her sex and used that as an excuse to get out of past mistakes, then I still would vote for Mitchell. Rivero came out swinging. Should Mitchell turn tail and run or stand up? I believe he is choosing to stand up. Go Mitchell!
If you dont think race has anything to do with it why are local Mexicans voting for Francisco Jose Rivero in block?
The problem there may be that Sheriff Mitchell hasnt been hard enough on undocumented citizens and now the sanctuary county has become his racial detriment.
Regardless of his shortcoming in setting an example akin to that of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, I can expect no perfection from anyone.
But truly, It never was about race.
