Sorry if this has been posted, but I couldn't see it anywhere. Dear fellow gun owner: This is an extremely painful email to send. Ed Thompson is a principled and decent man, a man with gumption, ideas, and a firm committment to gun rights. Many of the people on our email alert list have supported him, and for good reason. However, it is plainly evident at this point that he cannot win. With less than three weeks to go before the election, it would take Divine Intervention for him to pick up the additional thirty or so points needed to overtake Doyle or McCallum. Jim Doyle is now at around 40% in most polls, leading McCallum by roughly 7 to 9 points. That difference is about the same percentage that Ed Thompson is getting. Thompson's support is giving Doyle votes. Doyle would be the most anti-gun governor this state has ever had. You can view his frightening record at http://www.wigopac.com . The proposals that Doyle has put forth over the last twelve years make Bill Clinton look like Charlton Heston. Doyle would be a living hell for gunowners in Wisconsin. Scott McCallum and Margaret Farrow have been every bit as supportive of gun rights as Ed Thompson, and they offer a firm promise to advance pro-gun legislation, including concealed carry. On the morning of November 6th, gun owners could awaken to find their worst nightmares have come true. Remember that it was Ross Perot in 1992 who handed us Bill Clinton. The volunteers of the Wisconsin Concealed Carry Association have stayed out of the governors race, because many wanted Thompson to win. Now, however, all of them have reached the same conclusion about this race. When you step into the voting booth on November 5th, look carefully at your ballot. If you're about to cast your vote for Ed Thompson, look over at the checkbox for Jim Doyle. Will your conscience allow you to feel good about voting for Thompson, when you knew that your vote really elected Doyle? Please think about that before you go to the polls. Yours in Freedom, The Wisconsin Concealed Carry Association

Not only vote for mccallum, get everyone you know to get out and vote for him. Mccallum is going to need help with phone banks before the election and poll watchers on election day. If you can spare any time, please volunteer your efforts. I'm not that excited by mccallum, but I'm terrified of doyle.

All it would take is for Thompson to step up and be a man and if he were he would be more interested in the good of the state than his own ambitions.. Ed needs to ask his supporters to please vote for Scott McCallum... If Ed would throw his support for Scott than we could have a half way decent govt.. If Doyle wins I may have to move back out west..

But on a good note, I saw on the news that Chvala is going to resign because of the criminal charges being filed. I'm sure most know he single handedly stopped the CCW bill vote this year. One more anti-gunner gone!

As far as Chvala goes.....good fucking riddance. I sat here, with many other WI board members, and pounded on my desk listening to the live webcast of the proceedings in the last session of legislature last year. I could not believe that we have such lawbreaking, lowlife scum in office. The Sergeant at Arms should be educated on the law as it pertains to legislative session and be authorized to arrest anyone who breaks the law so. I too would love to see Ed Thompson pull it out. But he's not going to. I am going to send an email to Ed and urge him to endorse McCallum. Maybe if enough of us did, it would help.
