    Joe Arpaio, the polarizing 85-year-old immigration hard-liner pardoned by President Trump after a conviction for criminal contempt, announced on Tuesday that he is running in Arizona for the United States Senate.

    The move by Mr. Arpaio, who just six months ago faced a jail sentence before he was pardoned, upended the race to replace Senator Jeff Flake, a Republican who abandoned his 2018 re-election campaign after coming under criticism from Mr. Trump.

    The contenders for the seat include Representative Kyrsten Sinema, a centrist Democrat, and Kelli Ward, a conservative Republican and former state senator who aligns herself with Mr. Trump. Mr. Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, lost his own re-election bid for that post in 2016 to Paul Penzone, a Democrat and Phoenix police officer.

    I love Sheriff Joe and all he stands for but his age is a concern to me. The opposition will play on that big time.

    Agree!

    Criminals (which includes all illegals) are scared of Sheriff Joe even though his police-personna is a thing of the past.

    He's going to have considerable backing once he gets going.

    I'd call him America's football-coach. Old school. He's gonna make a man out of ya.

    I think she has a better chance.

    She was on CNN this morning. She presented well. She didn't fall for their attempts to get her to condemn Arpaio for his birther silliness, so that's probably a good indication of her loyalty to the GOP in general.


    Although I, as a liberal, will condemn Arpaio for his birther silliness. LOL.
