A tough-talking former Wisconsin sheriff with a national following plans to help Kris Kobach raise money for his U.S. Senate campaign in Kansas.

Kobach has scheduled a Nov. 12 fundraiser in Wichita with ex-Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Kobach's campaign is charging $25 for general admission tickets, $200 for VIP tickets and $350 to sponsor tables at the event.

The VIP package includes a photo with Clarke and Kobach and opportunity to win a .50 Cal black-powder muzzle-loading rifle.

Clarke was Milwaukee County's sheriff from 2002 to 2017, resigning to join a political action committee supporting President Donald Trump.

He gained national attention for supporting Trump and criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement.
