Leftists, elite media, freak out over Joe Arpaio’s Senate run

Arpaio announced he would seek the Arizona Senate seat being vacated by Republican loser Sen. Jeff Flake.

Leftists at the Los Angeles Times and elsewhere have gone berserk.

In a statement, Arpaio said he was running “for one unwavering reason: to support the agenda and policies of President Donald Trump in his mission to Make America Great Again.”

For Arpaio, it was his roughly quarter-century as sheriff of Maricopa County — which includes all of Phoenix — that gave him a national reputation for his tough treatment of people suspected of being in the country illegally.

After Trump entered the presidential race in July 2015, Arpaio invited him to Phoenix to talk about a crackdown on illegal immigration. He endorsed Trump just before the first votes in the Iowa caucuses in 2016, and frequently spoke out on behalf of Trump’s campaign.
