Joe Arpaio Senate Candidacy 'Won't Last Long,' Flake Says

"But, friend, I have never been one to shy away from a fight - and I can't in good conscience sit back in retirement knowing that my grandchildren will inherit a country worse off than the America I've spent my entire life defending", he said.

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

Taking down alien stash houses in the Phoenix area where human smugglers held illegal immigrants, threatening and sometimes physically assaulting them.

Arpaio blames the agency for his criminal conviction over intentionally defying a judge's order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants, though the charge was recommended by the judge. It was criticized as inhumane by activists, and his successor said there was no evidence it made people less likely to commit crimes.

Gardner was publicly critical and refused to support controversial Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual assault by multiple women, many of whom were teenagers at the time of the alleged incidents. Kelli Ward, who had attempted to cast herself as the most pro-Trump candidate in the race. Since then, many Republicans, especially those on the party's establishment wing, have pinned their hopes on Martha McSally, a congresswoman from Tucson, the state's second largest city, who was the first female fighter pilot to fly a combat mission and command a fighter squadron. Sinema announced back in September that she would run for the Senate seat. She appears poised to formally enter the race soon. How will Mr Arpaio's unexpected candidacy change the equation?

Senate later this year. "I'm going to fight to make sure this is a place our kids and our grandkids want to live", Scott said. The announcement also comes at a pivotal time for Scott, who is widely rumored to be contemplating a bid for U.S.

McSally, who now holds the lead, is a pro-life, hawkish retired Air Force Colonel who votes with Trump 100% of the time, but failed to openly endorse him in 2016, according to Shapiro. McSally came in at 31 percent and Ward dropped to 25 percent.

Before Arpaio announced his bid, Trump showed some support for Arpaio's opponent, former state Sen.

Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was recently criminally convicted and pardoned by President Donald Trump, told NPR that young unauthorized immigrants should be deported. But his endorsement may not be automatic.

Whichever Republican makes it to the general election will nearly certainly face Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema, a fundraising dynamo with a strong centrist record.

"Even if Arpaio loses the primary to McSally, he would have had seven months to push her to the right and define GOP messaging on a host of issues - and not just in Arizona", the Washington Examiner suggests.

Immigration's potential dominance in this race could have broad potential consequences for the party in the age of Trump and as Arizona and the country continue to become more racially diverse.
