Air Force Academy alum, retired Air Force Col. Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., is recognized by President Donald Trump during a presentation ceremony of the Commander-in-Chief trophy to the Air Force Academy football team, Tuesday, May 2, 2017, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. Before losing his reelection race for sheriff in 2016 he had served in the post for 24 years.
He'll enter a Republican primary for the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. "I don't think they would".
Arpaio was referring to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, composed of young adults who have lived in the USA illegally since childhood.
After invoking Frank Sinatra's "My Way" by claiming he has "too few" regrets to mention regarding his bigoted immigration enforcement record, Arpaio admitted he'd made "a few mistakes".
Arpaio's re-election defeat came amid a crush of criticism over $141 million in legal costs that Maricopa County taxpayers paid to defend him in lawsuits over his contentious immigration policies, deaths of inmates in his jails and a child sex abuse case botched by his agency. I'm saying that anyone who discounts him as something less than a serious candidate is making a mistake. It will likely mean that immigration - and conservative hard-line views on the subject - will dominate a Republican primary in a state that is now nearly a third Latino and in a country where Hispanics are gaining increasing clout politically nationally. I'm just not sure that 100% name ID when that name is Arpaio is an asset in a general election. She stands a strong chance of becoming the first Democrat elected to the Senate from traditionally Republican Arizona since 1988.
Arpaio's candidacy injects new uncertainty and attention into the race that's already among the year's most watched. Jeff Flake. She might want to rethink that. Kelli Ward in a primary, she'd have a more hard time in a three-way Republican race. If, however, the primary is a head-to-head race between Mr Arpaio and Ms McSally, the race is likely to be tighter. Perhaps best to bide her time. Sorry, Kelli, but I'm betting that crafty beats kooky any day. A guy re-elected numerous times as the sheriff of Maricopa County.
Or more specifically, in Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury.
"I started this because of fake documents, government documents", Arpaio explained again. Who'd have thought it. For one thing, the median age of entry for DACA recipients is 6 years old, so many people may not speak their birth language.
