From Sheriff Joe to Senator Joe? Arpaio Announces Senate Run

From Sheriff Joe to Senator Joe? Arpaio Announces Senate Run

On January 9, former sheriff Joe Arpaio announced his bid to run in Arizona for the U.S. Senate.

Beach expects additional Republican candidates to announce their intentions to make a run for Flake's seat as the primary draws closer, but doesn't think Arizona voters will support McSally or anyone else who is pro-illegal emigration and pro-amnesty. As if this were not enough, the presidential pardon freed Arpaio from any impediment to pursue a political career, which is why he has chose to run as a candidate to replace Senator Jeff Flake in Arizona, after he announced his retirement.

I don't know anything about Arizona politics, so I'm astonished to read AZ columnist Laurie Roberts' prediction that Trump-pardoned felon Joe Arpaio will win the state's Republican Senate primary.

"If I go to my grave, I don't think I'd be happy if I didn't take the shot to run", Arpaio said. "But I would not being doing this if I thought that I could not win".

In his interview with the Examiner, Arpaio offered a twist on how to deal with undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as minors, who will soon face deportation under Trump if Congress doesn't pass legislation to offer them the legal status many received under a now-rescinded Obama executive order. Although she and Sheriff Joe agree on illegal immigration, she has been an effective legislator in the state senate. "But, if you're going to come across that border, you should be arrested and get the consequences of it". He had been found guilty of criminal contempt in August 2017 for disregarding a court order in a racial profiling case.

He had not been sentenced but in August, White House said in a release that Arpaio's more than 50 years of "admirable service" made him a "worthy candidate for a presidential pardon".

Arpaio could use his celebrity and a vast mailing list to raise money without the support of deep-pocketed donors. Kelli Ward and U.S. Sen. His controversial tactics, which included racially profiling Latinx people during traffic stops, earned him a conviction in July for criminal contempt in.

Reporters, including myself, had dismissed Arpaio's ambitions as PR stunts.

Arpaio's reign ended when a relatively unknown Phoenix police sergeant defeated Arpaio in the 2016 sheriff election, despite Arpaio raising over $12.6 million to his rival's $1 million.

But Arpaio's Senate quest will be a decidedly uphill journey.

Arpaio will be running for the seat that is being vacated by the retirement of Sen.

Welch, however, also wondered exactly how serious Arpaio is about becoming a senator.

Rep. Martha McSally hasn't officially announced she is running but in November she told her Republican colleagues that she has plans to do so. "As for me, I will continue to stand and fight to do the right thing for Arizona and for America".

Several Democratic lawmakers have been outspoken on Twitter about Mr Arpaio's decision to run.
