Who Is Sheriff Richard Mack and Why Is He Running for Congress?

Richard Mack the former sheriff of Arizona’s Graham County is running for Congress in the Texas 21st Congressional District. He is running against longtime Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) in the primary. Mack is one of two candidates running against Congressman Smith in the Texas Primary. Before serving as a sheriff in Arizona Mack was a police officer for over twelve years in Utah. He previously ran for US Senate representing Arizona as a Libertarian candidate in 2006.

The former sheriff was the first in the nation to sign on to a lawsuit protecting Second Amendment rights: In Prinz v. United States, the Supreme Court ruled that the provision of the Brady Bill that required state and local law enforcement to work as agents of the federal government in running background checks on gun purchases was unconstitutional. Mr. Mack is also a founding member and board member of Oath Keepers which is a group of active and retired law enforcement and military personnel who have pledged not to enforce an unconstitutional or unlawful order.

The race for the 21st Congressional District should be getting a little more news since the incumbent, Lamar Smith, is the author of the controversial SOPA Bill. The bill was stopped from going forward by outraged citizens who feared it was a first step toward Internet censorship.

I was SHOCKED that I got "redistricted" INTO CD21

And THRILLED when I realized I'd get to vote FOR Richard Mack and AGAINST Lamar Smith! I'm in one of the few places where the folks drawing the lines got bumped on the elbow and WHOOPS! There I went into District 21 - whereas most folks in this city are in 25! (I AM a little suspicious of Yagermeister, however...and 'maybe' a few little sips by the district line 'artists' at this point in time...?)

I've met Sheriff Mack and heard him speak, and he means business! And he is a Constitutionalist!

Double Check if you're in Texas...and see if you're in Congressional District 21 - and if you are!

BACK MACK!!!!

Susie 4 Liberty

You are quite lucky, my

You are quite lucky, my liberty friend. I was excited vote for Mack over the traitor Smith, whom I've been trying to banish for years. However, I was redistricted this year into the newly created district 35, running from Hays county to Bexar county, through parts of Comal and Guadalupe counties along the I35 corridor. Rats! >:/

Please think of me when you cast that vote for Mack!

You have a liberty candidate in CD35

Vote for Rob Roark. I talked to him at a Ron Paul rally in Austin. Rob Roark totally supports Ron Paul. He deserves your vote.

I am voting for him, for

I am voting for him, for sure!

Susie 4 Liberty's picture

Can you even BELIEVE the District Lines?!

I couldn't even begin to tell where some of my friends would've landed! (And see? My point about Yagermeister is a valid one, huh!)

And Yes, I will think of you NB TXn!

Susie 4 Liberty

At LEAST when I went to my

At LEAST when I went to my county convention, there were plenty of establishment types who were FINALLY disillusioned with Smith.

Susie 4 Liberty's picture

Thank Goodness!

His slick mail-outs have literally sickened me! Pretty much say - -"I'm working as hard as I can to take away all of your Constitutionally Guaranteed Rights to Freedom and Liberty in order to 'protect you' from that 'Terrorist Boogeyman' hiding in your closet. Vote for me so I can finish the Job on you!"

Susie 4 Liberty

Awesome

Sheriff Mack is a great patriot.
Over the years I posted here on DP many of his speeches.
He founded Oath Keepers together with Stewart Rhodes.
Actually I was able to find this article by doing Oath Keepers google search.

Thanks for a bump.
