Las Vegas, NV – In a significant boost to her campaign, Elizabeth Helgelien, conservative Republican candidate for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, has received a pivotal endorsement from retired Sheriff Richard Mack. Sheriff Mack is not only the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association but also a renowned figure in the realm of constitutional rights. He was a plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case, Printz v. United States, a 1997 case where he, alongside Sheriff Jay Printz, challenged the constitutionality of a provision of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act. The Supreme Court ruled in their favor, asserting that the federal government could not compel local law enforcement to conduct background checks on gun purchasers, marking a significant victory for states’ rights and the Tenth Amendment.
On endorsing Helgelien, Sheriff Mack stated:
“I’m honored to join conservatives across the country endorsing Elizabeth Helgelien for Congress. Conservative leaders and I across America are joining together to endorse Elizabeth because she is a proven fighter for our conservative values. Elizabeth understands that the Constitution is the foundation of our Republic, and I am confident she will uphold her oath to protect and defend the Constitution. To do so is the highest calling for any elected official.”
Elizabeth Helgelien expressed her gratitude, saying, “I am honored to announce I have just been endorsed by another great conservative: Sheriff Richard Mack. He joins my other great endorsements including Congressman Gosar, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr.!”
This endorsement from a stalwart defender of the Constitution like Sheriff Mack adds to the surging momentum of Helgelien’s campaign. As she continues to garner widespread support from prominent conservative figures and organizations, it’s evident that her commitment to upholding constitutional values resonates deeply with voters and influential figures in the conservative movement.
