In the race for Milwaukee County Sheriff, Earnell Lucas easily defeated Acting Sheriff Richard Schmidt. 

Lucas is the Major League Baseball’s Chief Liaison of Security & Investigations for the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues. 

Schmidt was appointed sheriff after ex-Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke resigned. 

Lucas will still have to win in the general election against a potential Republican challenger. No one ran in the primary for the job.
