Big fundraising puts focus on Joe Arpaio's future
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been raising fistfuls of money for months now, but the question is: for what?
If Arpaio knows what office he will run for next, he isn't saying yet. But he promises to let voters know by May 1 whether he will hang onto his sheriff's badge or toss his hat into the ring for Govenor.
Arpaio has raised $2 million to date, money he cannot touch until he starts campaigning for sheriff or shifts gears to run for governor. He has been soliciting contributions for nearly a year, and the response has been striking even for someone with his name recognition.
Despite - or maybe because of - state and federal investigations into Arpaio's office, donors have handed over $25 and $30 contributions in droves.
If Arpaio makes a bid for governor, he could roll that $2 million into the statewide campaign, experts say. Arizona statutes allow for candidates to transfer funds to another campaign when seeking a different office, as long as the legal-contribution limits are equal or greater for the new office.

Oh hell yes! I hope he does run for governor. We would have to rename the State of Arizona to the State of Awesome.

I hope he runs for Governor and wins. I have been keeping up with him over the years and I like the way he thinks and the work he does. It seems the only people that he pisses off are the criminals, the illegals and the liberals. All the hard wroking honest people in his state seem to like him.
