Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio Enters Arizona Senate Race for Flake's Seat

Tactics events that defined Joe Arpaio's career as sheriff

Disgraced ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio was officially pardoned by President Donald Trump past year - and now he's running for the Senate. Dr. Kelli Ward, a former Arizona State Senator, announced a run for the seat a year ago after unsuccessfully running against Republican John McCain in 2016. The candidate "dismissed" Republican insiders' anxiety that his poor reputation with nonwhite voters might put the seat in play for Democrats in the midterm, and said he plans to alight himself with Trump.

Arpaio will be 86 on Election Day, but said his age was an advantage in the race.

Arpaio will join a now three-way race with Rep. Marth McSally and state Sen. Trump told Fox News prior to the pardon that Arpaio was "a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him". "I'm a big supporter of President Trump", he told the paper. John McCain, in the race.

Ward, who has been endorsed by former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, had been styling herself as the pro-Trump outsider, so Arpaio's entry threatens to cut into her support.

"If we can win here, we will not only have kept a disreputable candidate out of the chamber, but we will take one giant leap forward toward replacing Mitch McConnell as the Senate Majority Leader", Murphy said.

In 2016, facing a flood of out-of-state money, a well-organized Latino get-out-the-vote campaign, and the criminal contempt charges, Arpaio lost by a stunning 10 points.

As I wrote at the time: "In pardoning Arpaio, Trump has given a free pass to an unrepentant and habitual abuser of authority, a man with insufficient regard for the Constitution he swore to uphold or the separation of powers it enshrines".

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy immediately sent supporters a fundraising email seeking contributions to be split between his campaign account and Sinema's.

Arpaio, who was soundly defeated in November 2016 in a bid for a seventh term in office, has floated possible runs for governor or senator for years.
