Ex-sheriff Arpaio to run for Senate in Arizona

Ex-sheriff Arpaio to run for Senate in Arizona”

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio leaves U.S. District Court in Phoenix on January 25, 2017.

According to a ABC-15/OHPI poll conducted by the ABC-TV affiliate in Phoenix, Arpaio, who is 85, draws 29 percent of the vote among likely Republican voters to 31 percent for Rep. Martha McSally (who is expected to declare for the seat next week).

The Republican Flake has been critical of Trump and announced past year that he would not seek another term. Then Trump offered the pardon last summer.

The poll mirrors initial speculation that Arpaio could edge out Ward and create an opening for McSally, who colleagues have said is planning a Senate run but has not yet made an announcement. And while Flake quickly denounced Arpaio and predicted that his fledgling candidacy wouldn't last much longer than the time it takes to write about it, the right-wing propaganda machine that is Fox News is already doing its part to get him elected anyway. Over the years, he flirted with running for Arizona governor no fewer than five times before demurring and abandoning the idea.

Arpaio said he would accept a Trump endorsement, but he would not seek it.

"If you know my history, you know they [other candidates] ask for the endorsements", Arpaio said.

These are the weakest interview questions you'll ever see.
