There will probably be some fans who voted for him in hte past and see no problem with a convicted felon sitting in the Senate.

Just don't count on him getting the Hispanic vote.

He’s a good man but at age 85, while fitting in with other fossils in Congress, is much too old and should just retire to the book and talk show circuit

He's not a good man, he's a hateful, racist old asshole who abused his authoritative power to run a torture chamber and patrol only the heavy Hispanic areas of Maricopa County. If we lived in a fair and just society, his crooked old ass should be spending the rest of his useless life in jail.

I doubt that he will actually follow through with submitting the official paperwork. The citizens of Maricopa County have seen his song and dance before, I'm think about running for Governor, President etc..Maricopa County is the largest county in Arizona, and he couldn't win re-election, so how in earth would he win in the Democrat leaning parts of the state, like Tucson and Flagstaff?

They don't have to report on it since with candidates like Flake, Ward and Mcally he has zero chance and will probably not run in his current age and health. The media is just stroking this because they need people to call racists so they group the whole GOP as racist for the big push this mid term election.

Oh honey, no one is calling the GOP racist. Racist is so far back in the rear view mirror Dubya is looking like a smart, kind old President. We’ve moved on to how-white-supremacist-are-you with today’s GOP

I agree that the Democratic party is deliberately trying to make the GOP racist so they can keep the black vote, even though the democratic party itself has done very little for minorities in the last couple of decades.

That being said, Joe is very much running and said so himself. I didn't think he was a bad sheriff myself as he was one who was willing to actually enforce all the laws. But I thought some of the things he did were way over the top, particularly in the later years, and given the pardon and his age I would rather he not run. We need more youth in politics, not more fossils, and certainly not people who would be divisive as Arapaio would. Flake is not running again so I don't know why you mentioned him. Ward and McCally are the other two people, and honestly Arapaio being in the race splits the anti establishment primary vote between him and Ward. If everyone stays in the race, McCally would be my pick to win the primary, and if he does he probably wins the general as well. Not sure either of the other names could win the general.

McConnell would be wise to avoid getting involved in the primary here as well.

While the second half of your statement may be true, the first half is laughable. The GOP needs zero help being racist--Moore, Arpaio, Sessions, Kobach, Trump, Miller, and the phalanx of white supremacists and outright nazis are not external creations--they were birthed from the GOP's loins decades in the making. Roy Moore and Joe Arpaio are just the next (il)logical step on the GOP road for lunatic racist old white men, and absolutely not outliers.

Sorry snowflakes but he did a great job as sheriff. What was the torture chamber ?

Forgot about Flake and yes he was a good sheriff but he ended on a bad note and way too polarizing and old. I don't see him going too far and for the life of me can't understand why he needs this. I am backing Ward.

Joe is turning this into an IQ test for Arizonians.

Arpaio doubles down on ‘birther’ claims against Obama as he launches Senate bid
In a Wednesday night interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN, Arpaio said there was “no doubt” Obama’s birth certificate is fake.

“We have the evidence,” he said. “I’m not going to go into all the details. It’s a phony document.”


He knows the electorate better than me. Are the bulk of Arizonians really stupid enough to make this a viable pitch?

In totally unrelated news, Trump wants people who say "something that is false and defamatory about someone that person will have meaningful recourse in our courts."

(Source: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/10/trump-wants-to-change-libel-law-experts-say-theres-nothing-he-can-do.html)

Would that make this guy the first person to receive two presidential pardons?

I kind of hope he wins primary. Sure it means we have to sit trough 6 months of racially divisive vitriol in the general election, but it will make AZ an all-but-guaranteed Democratic pick up. It will be Roy Moore all over again, just this time in a state the Democrats have a chance of wining as opposed to Alabama.

Wait for him to win the primary first before asking if all Arizonans are stupid. First, AZ Republicans must elect him in the primary. If he loses and becomes yesterday's news, the seat could still stay red and prove that Arizonans are not "stupid".

All AZ Republicans ARE Arizonans but not all Arizonans are AZ Republicans.

I think he is second behind McSally now and slightly ahead of Ward and his base support probably agrees with the Birther thing.

Might be a good time to have a cartoon character of a plump Arpaio wearing only nice pink underpants.

Toss in a count of the number of Prisoners who have died under his care

Then ask if people really want a convicted felon for their Senator.

Then make sure all Dem ads against him use the plump cartoon character with pink underpants

You know, I'd like to ask these birther morons a question - even if it was true, so what? Are you going to anull his presidency or something? Get over it. It's as bad as people who still say Gore beat Bush because of the Florida fiasco. Water under the bridge......

Why? Decent people turn their back on the GOP in large numbers, racists become a larger share of the GOP base, which drives even more decent people away.
They are making the GOP more racist ... by being non racist (well, or a ot less).
Basically just racists complaining that hiding becomes harder once you become the majority of the party...
