Current Governor of Arizona, Jan Brewer, has announced that she will not seek re-election. Brewer recently announced that she will respect Arizona’s limits of two four-year terms and that, “There does come a time to pass the torch of leadership.”
But who will that torch be passed to? One potential candidate, who has expressed interest in running, is a certainty to make liberal heads explode, as he is one of the left’s most hated targets. If you think that the left hates Sarah Palin, if you think they hate Ted Cruz, just wait to see the vitriol released if this man throws his badge into the ring.
Less than a week ago, a man was charged with mailing a bomb to this potential gubernatorial candidate who is regularly threatened with violence by his opponents.
Legendary Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is considering running for Governor of Arizona. The youthful 81 year-old has raised a reported $3.5 million for a potential run and the man well-known as “America’s toughest sheriff” recently told Newsmax that, “If I’m ever going to do it, I should do it now.”
But not if lefties have their way, as opposition will be fierce. A “People against Sheriff Joe Arpaio” Facebook page has 128,380 “likes” at the time of this writing.
Known to many as simply “Sheriff Joe,” Arpaio has served six terms as Sheriff, but explained to Newsmax that he’d have to step down if he runs. “If I’m going to do it, the only problem is that I have to resign as sheriff, Arpaio said.
Sheriff Arpaio’s tough stance on enforcing immigration laws, as well as his famous “Tent City” jail facility, drive the left nuts. Get ready to see their heads explode if he decides to run.
