    Default Sheriff Joe: running again in Arizona

    At age 88, he wants his old job back. I think he's counting on his strong connection and allegiance to tRump to give him a boost --

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/joe-arpai...190333782.html

    PHOENIX — After 24 years of doling out his punitive brand of justice in Arizona’s most populous county, Joe Arpaio, who billed himself as “America’s toughest sheriff,” suffered a landslide defeat in 2016, largely because of his hard-line immigration stances and his own pugnacious defiance, which earned him a criminal conviction for contempt of court.

    Now he’s trying to win back his old job.

    Arpaio faces his first test in the Republican primary election Tuesday, when he must survive a three-way race that includes a challenge from his former chief deputy, Jerry Sheridan.

    Few in the state believe Arpaio, 88, can mount a successful comeback and win in November, saying that he’s too old, too out of touch or too politically damaged to run a credible campaign in 2020.

    88 years old?

    His decision to run will likely result in Arizona going blue

    A blue Arizona would be good.
    Go Joe!
    Kansas, while not likely to go blue, is having a similar problem with Kris Kobach.

    I know very little of the man but at 88 he will very likely be talking a tough form of law enforcement rather than actually doing it at first hand.Is there no requirement for the sheriff to get on the streets for a few hours each week?

    Sheriff's in the US have almost no accountability.
    An obscenely powerful position, unlike a bonafide "police dept."

    Trump can't be very happy that one of big fans has been eliminated. I wonder what it says about the mood of the state this time...

    My sons firm ran the oppositions election strategy that defeated Joe.
    I was super proud at the time of course.
    By n by, even he has become dis en franchised by politricks.
    I see 4 more years of Trump.
