Dear fellow gun owner:

With the primary elections now over, it's time to focus on getting
pro-concealed carry candidates elected in November. It will take some time
before we'll have information for you on all of the pro-gun candidates. In
the meantime, though, one race stands out above the rest as pivotal to the
cause of concealed carry.

That's the race between Barbara Linton and turncoat Representative Gary
Sherman.

Governor Doyle has made Gary Sherman's re-election a top priority. Doyle has
held many, many fund-raisers for Sherman with anti-gun forces in Madison and
Milwaukee. And for good reason: if Sherman loses to Barbara Linton, it will
send a clear signal to other legislative Democrats that siding with the
governor against gun owners is political suicide. Sherman's defeat would
weaken Doyle politically.

As of last week, Sherman's campaign had $63,000 in the bank.

Meanwhile, Barbara Linton has been campaigning long and hard, and doing an
excellent job. She's doing very well in terms of contributions, but she
could still use more. With your help, she can beat Sherman like a drum.

We need to make sure that she wins. Our political action committee--the
WCCM--has already contributed the maximum amount allowed by law to her
campaign. However, you can personally contribute any amount up to $500 to
her campaign. Even $5 or $10 will help. Or you can volunteer your time.

This race is a must-win. If Sherman isn't defeated, it's will make getting
concealed carry passed next year extremely difficult. That's how critically
important this race is.

To contribute to Barbara Linton's campaign, or to offer to volunteer,

Sherman likely won't be the sole deciding factor in WI CCW again in 2005. The Republicans are going to pick up enough seats to be able to over-ride any Doyle's veto, I'm betting. Doyle's little kingdom is done.
If the GOP had any balls they'd be impeaching him for his casino deals.

I think a more important political battle Statewide is to ride the Republican Sherrifs and LE that came out against CCW,hypocrites is too kind a word.

FWIW,
Ashland County Sheriff John Kovach was one of the only 4 Wisconsin sheriffs that went on record IN FAVOR of the CCW. Kudos to Sheriff Kovach. Glad to live in Ashland County!!!
Cheers,
Dave
