Arizona's 'Sheriff Joe' mulling possible bid for governor, raising millions | Fox News
Just what AZ needs - the KKK in the governor's mansion. Hopefully, Arpaio will die soon.Arizona's controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced this week he added $3.5 million to his campaign coffers last year a personal best as he hints he's again considering a run for governor.
The record haul was made possible mostly from out-of-state donors who supported the Maricopa County sheriffs enforcement tactics.
Critics of Arpaio tried unsuccessfully to force a recall election against him last year, a battle which his office claims cost him about $8 million.
But as he builds his war chest back up, he's vowing to run again, presumably for a seventh term but possibly for governor.
"Every four years, my supporters encourage me to run for governor," Arpaio said in a written statement. "Based on these fundraising numbers and knowing I could be competitive, I will have to give it serious consideration."
