Schauer endorsed by major state law enforcement organization
State Sen. Mark Schauer continues to rack up endorsements in his quest to knock off ultra-conservative Tim Walberg in the race for the 7th Congressional District seat.
The Michigan Association of Police Organizations (MAPO) announced their endorsement today in a press release. The MAPO’s eight member organizations – such as The Michigan State Police Troopers Association and the Michigan Association of Police - represent three-fourths of the state's 19,500 certified police officers.
“MAPO is proud to endorse Mark Schauer for Congress," said Richard Weiler, President of the Michigan Association of Police Organizations, in the press release announcing the endorsement. “The law enforcement community is excited about the possibility of Mark bringing to Congress the same commitment to public safety that he exhibited in the Michigan Legislature. We look forward to calling him Congressman Schauer.”
