Democrats are fighting back in 2011. That’s what real fighters do when they are knocked down. They get back up and start throwing punches. And we at Mad Dog Mail are proud to be right there in the ring with them.
There is a reason our firm is called Mad Dog Mail – we fight hard, and we do what it takes to win. And since the Republican wave in the fall of 2010, that’s exactly what we’ve done. We have won tough races that help lay the groundwork for future Democratic gains in swing states such as Missouri and Florida.
St. Louis – Jake Zimmerman
“Zimmerman wins first county assessor’s race in 51 years”

“Zimmerman wins handily in St. Louis County assessor’s race”
St. Louis Beacon
Mad Dog Mail helped elect Jake Zimmerman, a rising star in Missouri politics, to the newly created position of St. Louis County Assessor. The Zimmerman team crushed a wealthy realtor supported by Tea Party extremists, taking over 64% of the vote. As the first elected Assessor, Jake will have the opportunity to establish the office’s roles and focus on helping struggling homeowners and keeping seniors in their homes.

Buckhorn wins Tampa mayor election
Mad Dog Mail was proud to have done independent expenditure work to supplement Bob’s spectacular campaign. Buckhorn led the charge, receiving over 63% of the vote, in the Tampa municipal election that saw Democrats sweep every last Republican out of office.
Buckhorn was written off early by Tampa’s political elite as a three-time loser with little shot of winning. However, he didn’t give up (and neither did we) and what ultimately made him good enough to win, Buckhorn said, was losing. “I didn’t fear losing, because I’ve felt losing,” he says. “I know what it feels like, and I know it doesn’t kill me. So when you really have no fear of losing, it changes your perspective.”
Mad Dog Mail congratulates Mayor-elect Bob Buckhorn and his campaign on a great victory and wishes him the best of luck in creating a better Tampa.
Chicago- Susana Mendoza and Latasha Thomas
Mendoza to become the first female city clerk
Rep. Susana Mendoza Declares Victory in Clerk’s Race
In Chicago, Mad Dog Mail worked with Susana Mendoza to win the election outright, electing the first female Chicago city clerk with over 60% of the vote. We were also able to help Latasha Thomas through a crowded eight-way primary where she garnered 48% of the vote. While the runoff election doesn’t take place until April 5, we are confident she will prevail. As a firm, Mad Dog Mail has fought to elect more females across the nation, and we’re proud of our work in Chicago.
Mad Dog Mail congratulates Susana Mendoza on her victory, and we’re still doing everything possible to make sure Latasha Thomas wins her run-off election on April 5.
