Sheriff Randy Wright has been defeated by Shawano police officer Adam Bieber during Tuesday's primary election for Shawano County Sheriff. Wright had served as sheriff for two terms. Adam Bieber's campaign for Shawano County Sheriff has become more popular than he anticipated, even drawing attention from a senior producer at TMZ.
During an interview with NewsChannel 7 on August 6, Bieber said he was surprised that sharing a last name with pop star Justin Bieber has given his campaign attention outside of Shawano County.
"A lot of people have been asking me about Justin Bieber. When I ran I did not think Justin Bieber would be a big deal in this election," Bieber said.
Bieber will run uncontested during general election Nov. 4
