Despite the best efforts of Democrats all over the country, Sheriff Joe Arpaio was able to secure the Republican spot in his quest to become sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona once again. Now, however, he may be facing a new foe as he seeks reelection.
According to Arizona Family, Arpaio may now face a new liberal opponent in George Soros, the billionaire liberal hedge fund tycoon.
The Donald Trump-loving sheriff has seen his support significantly decrease after a group linked to Soros mounted an anti-Arpaio attack in an attempt to weaken his bid for a seventh straight term. The group began by sending fliers to Phoenix-area voters two weeks ago. Last week, they sent out a mailing accusing Arpaio of separating a mother from her child simply because of an unpaid traffic ticket. They also claimed that he has botched thousands of sex crimes and has caused illegal aliens to become so scared that they are afraid to report crimes.
Arpaio, however, isn’t going down without a fight. He has vehemently denied the claims, and is more than able to fight back given the $2.9 million still available for campaign spending ahead of the Nov. 8 vote. This dwarfs the $326,000 raised by his current challenger, Democrat Paul Penzone, a who lost to Arpaio by 6 percentage points in 2012.
Clearly, Democrats are still desperate to take Arpaio down in any way possible because they know he will never stop speaking out against people like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. SHARE this story if you stand by him!
