Speaking of establishment candidates…

…another one of them is going to be challenged this go-round.

Via David Codrea at The War On Guns, I find that former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack is going to be challenging longtime congressman Lamar Smith. A perusal of Mack’s positions is very encouraging; he’s pro-gun (in fact, he was the first county sheriff to file suit to get the Brady law overturned), in favor of small government and tighter border security, and supports lower taxes & spending. Lawrence Person at the BattleSwarm Blog (which I really need to add to my daily reading list) has more on Mack and Smith here.

    And as Lawrence notes, Mack also opposed SOPA and PIPA, which is another plus for him from my POV.

    And Lawrence and I would still like to do a blog meetup with you over barbecue sometime (Cooper’s in New Braunfels?) when we can get the schedules worked out. Just saying.

    Yep, I saw that as well, and I completely agree with you.

    And a blog meetup at Cooper’s would be GREAT. Things are still kinda up in the air right now, but I will keep in touch.

    Good luck to him. It’d be really nice to get Lamar Smith out. He’s too easily bought by RIAA, etc.
