Joe Arpaio to run for Senate in Arizona

Joe Arpaio to run for Senate in Arizona

"His candidacy shows that conservatives in Arizona are fed up with the status quo and know that we need senators who support President Trump and the (president's) America First agenda", Rollins said.

Arpaio's candidacy is likely to generate headaches for Republicans in Washington, who are desperate to hold on to the Arizona Senate seat or risk losing control of the chamber. The Republican Flake has criticized Trump's brand of politics in his final months in office.

- Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sets his sights on our nation's capitol.

His pardon by Trump in late August gave new life to a politician who left office battered after years of scandals. A judge ruled he had willfully violated a 2011 injunction barring his officers from stopping and detaining Latino motorists exclusively on suspicion that they were in the country illegally. He does, however, expect Democrats to make an issue of the pardon. The president said the prosecution was politically motivated.

Together, we will defeat Sheriff Joe's risky actions and exhausted rhetoric. "But Sheriff Joe should feel good". "Sheriff Joe protected our borders". But it was open to the burning Arizona sun and drew widespread criticism.

"He didn't have the guts to face the people to get re-elected". His controversial tactics, which included racially profiling Latinx people during traffic stops, earned him a conviction in July for criminal contempt in. I don't say that.

Two years ago, Democrat Paul Penzone, who raked in support from the state's growing Latino population upset over their treatment by Arpaio and his deputies, bested Arpaio.

"If you're Kelli Ward today, you must think the political Gods are against you, because once upon a time, you were set to win the primary and Jeff Flake withdrew, then you were set to win because no one else was getting in, and now practically Donald Trump himself has gotten in the race", said Barnes. Arpaio has made it clear that he's running in Trump's name, writing on his campaign website: "President Trump needs my help in the Senate".

For example, he established chain gangs for inmates to contribute thousands of dollars of free labor to communities, painting over graffiti and cleaning streets.

It remains to be seen whether Arpaio will seriously pursue this race.

Arpaio's announcement also raised questions about whether he was serious about the Senate or if he was mainly seeking publicity.

Who is he running against in Arizona? Democrats are incumbents in 24 of those, not including Angus King (Maine) and Bernie Sanders (Vermont), who caucus with the Democrats.

Arpaio told NBC: "After talking with my wife, I've chose to announce my candidacy for the Republican nomination of the United States Senate seat, which is vacated by Senator Jeff Flake in Arizona".
