Is Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Running for Senate seat of Retiring for the seat of retiring Jon Kyl (R-AZ) in 2012?

 

US Senator … Joe Arpaio?

Ever since Arizona US Senator Jon Kyl announced that he was retiring and would not run in 2012, many have come forward and names have been speculated as possible candidates for the open seat. The latest to put their toe in the political water is Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio

 

Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Monday he is open to the possibility of running for the seat of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) in 2012.

Arpaio, the conservative sheriff famous for his hard-line anti-immigration stances, made the remarks in light of a poll released today by Summit Consulting Group Inc., which is fundraising for Arpaio’s reelection campaign for sheriff. The company’s Chad Willems is Arpaio’s campaign manager.

The poll by the Summit Consulting Group had some rather interestng results, including Arpaio in the lead over other perspective GOP candidates.

The poll reported 21 percent of likely GOP voters would choose Arpaio; 17 percent would vote for Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.); 16.6 percent favored former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.), who challenged Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the 2010 GOP Senate primary; 12 percent would vote for Rep. John Shadegg (R-Ariz.) and 6 percent would choose freshman Rep. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.).

One thing is for certain, illegal immigration would be provided an interesting voice from Arpaio. Wouldn’t you love to see an illegal immigration and amnesty exchange between Arpaio and RINO Lindsey Graham. What a breath of fresh air Arpaio would add to the US Senate. And yes, Senator Joe Arpaio does have a nice sound.

      Is that the sheriff who targets Spanish/ Mexican looking ppl, just because they look like them?

    3. Rusty Bridges on February 15th, 2011 12:33 pm

      #2, No, he is the Sheriff that follows the law to the letter and advises his men to do so also and that includes not profiling people.

    4. katablog.com on February 15th, 2011 3:04 pm

      Dolf: are you aware of how many US citizens are killed each year by illegals? Once again we read about 3 Americans killed by someone who was suppose to have been deported 10 years ago. It’s not a new story.

      Joe upholds the law and has no excuses for prisoners (of any race), dressing them in pink underwear and actually making them WORK (God forbid) for the state taking care of their room and board.

      We need someone who has actually worked in the trenches in a real job and believes in the US Constitution. We also need someone who believes in being humane but doesn’t make prison a summer camp affair with pizza and football games.

    5. Dolf on February 15th, 2011 4:34 pm

      Katablog…how many ppl are killed by guns in the US?
      Still it seems to be offtopic to limit even small parts of it.

      and that Joe likes the camera a bit to much..a real good sheriff doesn’t need no camera’s to glorify him. (We don’t elect those officials here though, think thats a good thing…elections tend to corrupt).
      and being in a US prison isn’t a joke I think more like a receipt for butt-raped.

      and the vast majority of those illegals just want a better life for them or their family (things haven’t been good in mexico..)

      Things that make you go Hmnnnnnnnnnnnnn….

      @35- Dolf~ Agree with your statement: A real good Sheriff doesn’t need any cameras to glorify him/her.

      As far as your comment about GUN OWNERSHIP–that’s a good question, and quite a controversial one at best however not quite sure what your point was. How many people are killed AROUND THE WORLD, maybe—or in Europe maybe- whatever- if you are catching my drift.

      I don’t personally own a firearm, but guess what Dolf? In addition to owning my own business with my Husband- and since it is in the heart of a City riddled with crime- I do carry a can of Mace and even need permission to do so. Real easy to get- but still there is a simple legal and Non-Legal way to get it. Guess what else, Mr. Dolf?

      I am working part-time for a local Police Department, and very recently, the Sargeant who hired me has asked me now if I would like to come on board and increase my hours in addition to the capacity and scope of my job responsibilities in a very wealthy and exclusive suburb slightly North of Boston proper and I am so excited to begin I can hardly contain my joy. I am also, upon securing that position, immediately going to go purchase a Firearm, since I will need one then.

      What for you ask? Well, Gee, Dolf you tell me. One never knows in this crazy World or anywhere on Planet Earth- now do they? What say you? You say, well, Gee- New Girl Boston—how have you survived so far with my RE Investment Properties in one of the most Crime riddled Cities outside of Boston Proper then? If NG did not need a Firearm then, why now? I survived without the need for one so far by using my brains, and the intelligence and solid backing of a solid Business Co-Owner and Proprietor- my Wonderful Husband. And WE survived by doing our homework, learning very fast and with the support and help of the Local Police Department and Drug Task force in the City of Lynn, Massachusetts. You know what, DOLF? I am proud of that City- which has the old time saying and reputation of:

      Lynn Lynn
      The City of Sin
      You never come out
      The way you went in.

      I can sure as hell attest to that. I am a changed person and all the better for it. I am no damn hero, and I cannot rescue every hooker or homeless person, or Crackhead junkie off of the streets and provide them a clean, decent, safe place to live with their family—but I can tell you my Husband and I sure as hell work damn hard, don’t rent to Drug Dealers or anyone doing drugs, and we have made many, many friends and acquaintenes (sp) through the 8 long years we have been doing this (in addition to both working other jobs, volunteering for our community and raising a family. You know what, DOLF? We are no one special, and you probably wouldn’t even give us a second look if you passed either one of us on the streets. Well, that is not entirely true as I must modestly and humbly admit- I do get plenty of looks all of the time- so I smile to myself and there is a twinkle in my eyes on those particular good days as New Girl Boston hides those green eyes quite often behind a pair of shades. (good strategy in a Poker Game, too).

      THE ABOVE is what it means to me and millions of other PROUD American Citizens such as myself and my Husband to be just exactly that, a proud American. Are we cocky or arrogant? Oh, hell No. Do we shoot straight? Yep. Will I now, with my curent change in status of position at my ripe old age of none of your business but I would bet my last paycheck I am younger than you—will I now purchase a FireArm, and have my Sargeant take me to the local range and teach me to shoot. Hell yes, job requirement. And quite frankly, I’m pretty psyched about it too. Will I ever become a great Marksman and sharpshooter. No clue but I will give it a go. Would I hesitate to take a bullet for my Country Man or Woman or any American Citizen to fight or die for my Country- YOU BETCHA. Oh, and the very first on that list would be my children, family or friends in no particular order (white lie: CHILDREN FIRST) Would I ever, if needed- hesitate to use my Firearm after it is purchased to defend or protect my Second Amendment Rights as they were granted to every US Citizen.

      HELL TO THE NO, Big time- bang bang you are dead- GAME OVER.

      So, why the long rant from New Girl Boston tonight. Because while I enjoy your comments here and often read with great interest because I also believe as individuals, and no matter where we are from- we ALL HAVE A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT to our own BELIEFS, VIEWS, WHO WE DO OR DO NOT CHOSE TO WORSHIP—- I value those rights I have been granted simply by virtue of being fortunate enough to have been born in the greatest, strongest and most Wonderfully diversely effed up but I wouldn’t have it any other way—Country on the planet.

      You can keep Amsterdam (lovely to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there) Paris- (even lovlier but the French are P*ssies) and all of your European culture and rich history and beauty. It is a wonderful, glorius and fascinating place to travel and enjoy, but depending on where you go—you see the looks or feel the, well. frankly—JEALOUSY.

      To which I proudly (albiet internally respond and loud and wise assed, sharp but it’s only in my head–BITE ME!)

      * God Bless the USA, God Bless us All *

      And, don’t hate us, join us. It’s wonderful here, too but full of everytthing beautiful and the ugliest of ugly. Just make sure you are legal though. LOL

      Read here:

      http://policelegal.com/2010/12/27/woburn-police-officer-john-jack-maguire-killed-during-armed-robbery/

      Parole Board—-what happened? A good Cop and family Man is DEAD, WHY? Because of incompetency and you cannot do your effing jobs????????????

      He was out doing his job—-never really even had to use his 9MM in the line of duty-responds to a call, and loses his life. Over what?

      Oh, Geez Thanks GUVNAH AND OBAMA CLONE, for at first saying—”Let’s not jump to conclusions” and then when every POLICE CAPTAIN, CHIEF, OFFICER, COMMANDER AND STATE TROOPER SHOWED UP AND PROTESTED (AFTER THEY RESPECTED A FALLEN BROTHER)

      ….Then, and only then was Deval forced to shitcan all but one of them. Govnah- YOU SUCK. PAROLE BOARD. YOU SUCK WORSE YOU BUNCH OF BROWN NOSERS DOING A JOB A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL SHOULD DO? You bought his bullshit and a Cop is dead, and it isn’t the first time either.

      Domenic Cinelli, in infamous low life who gives a shit about you dirtbags of society—-TAKING A FAMILY MAN AWAY FROM HIS WIFE, CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN just doing his job.

      GORACLE! EFF YOU, YOU ARE A LEGAL CRIMINAL. It’s called Climate Change, MORON and you have already milked your Goracle minions and followers out of millions.

      EFF YOU, DEAR Mr. PRESIDENT! While I truly, truly appreciate and respect Mr. Obama just simply based upon title alone (and also with the knowledge that NO MAN OR WOMAN can completely change all that is wrong in the US in 4 or 8 years—-but here is the key:

      THEY CAN AT LEAST MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

      Hope and Change, My Arse. I’m getting my permit and hitting the firing range, because it’s a cruel world out there and I cannot stomach Extreme Left Fools LIBTARDS who heads are so far up their asses they cannot even figure out what the hell is going on in front of them—right before their very own eyes.

      GOD BLESS AMERICA, AND GOD BLESS THE US of A!!!!
