In his Sacramento County Sheriff campaign mailer Cooper is 'Standing Tall,' Barnes highlights rank and file support

Perhaps it is a homage to the real-life law enforcement official Bufford Pusser portrayed in the early 70s movie Walking Tall, or maybe it is just that he literally stands tall. In either case, California Assemblymember Jim Cooper's first of the season mailer stands above others that have recently landed in voters' mailboxes. 

In the mailer we call Standing Tall, the piece shows the former Sacramento County Sheriff Captain and Assemblymember standing in a police uniform. Cooper, who stands over six feet, is headlined with "No One has shown more courage, or stood taller for public safety that Jim Cooper, our next Sheriff."

That headline is followed by the heading "We're standing with Jim Cooper" highlight endorsements. Among the endorsements highlighted are Sacramento County District Attorney Ann Marie Schubert and former Sacramento County Sheriff Lou Blanas. 

Cooper retired from the sheriff's department in 2014 after a 30-year career and his election to the 9th District California Assemblymember. In 2010 Cooper lost his first bid for Sacramento County Sheriff to Scott Jones, who is leaving office this year and running for the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Opposing Cooper is Sacramento County Undersheriff Jim Barnes, who Jones has endorsed. Although Barnes has not sent mailers, he has been running TV commercials on Comcast. 

In his spot, Barnes features many apparent Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff's supporting his candidacy. Barnes has been endorsed by the Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff's Association. 

With only two candidates, the winner of the June primary will be the next Sacramento County Sheriff.
