Arpaio's choice to run shakes up Senate race in Arizona

His bid could create an opening for Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, who colleagues have said is planning a Senate run but has not yet made an announcement.

McSally, a two-term congresswoman, becomes the third high profile Republican to enter the race.

People have been comparing the political styles of President Donald Trump and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio since the allies starting appearing together at campaign events.

The retired United States Air Force colonel and current U.S. House representative from Arizona's 2nd Congressional District announced the news in a video posted online where, in the words of Team 12's Brahm Resnik, she went "full fighter jock".

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of PC politicians and their BS excuses", she says straight into the camera.

All three candidates will likely try to leverage their ties to Trump to their benefit. On Aug. 25, after declaring Arpaio an "American patriot", Trump pardoned him.

McSally is widely seen as the national party's preferred nominee, much as incumbent Senator Luther Strange was backed by the party's establishment wing in the battle for the Republican nomination in a Senate special election in Alabama against hard-line evangelical Christian conservative Roy Moore.

Several Republican political consultants said Arpaio's prolific fundraising and strong name recognition could marginalize Ward's campaign, which has targeted the same bloc of Trump voters.

Heinrich Statement On House FISA Reauthorization Vote
Dick Durbin, Democrat from IL , and Cory Gardner, Republican from Colorado, tweeted a statement saying there was indeed a deal. A number of Democrats , including Speaker Nancy Pelosi , also voted to reauthorize .

While her formal announcement will come in a tour across the state Friday, her campaign released a video ahead of time showing her as someone not afraid to take on the establishment, Sharia law, and who will push for border security.

The former lawman, who was known for jailing inmates in outdoor tents during Arizona's triple-digit summer heat and forcing them to wear pink underwear, said supporters urged him to seek public office again despite his crushing 2016 re-election defeat to a little-known Phoenix police sergeant.

Ward, who has been backed by former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, has framed her campaign as an extension of Trump's "America First agenda", although that could be more hard now that Trump is feuding with Bannon.

Ward said she would run for Flake's seat shortly after losing a 2016 challenge to Arizona Republican Sen. Trump has not endorsed a candidate in the race.

Martha McSally refused to endorse Donald Trump.

Securing the USA border and figuring out how to normalize the status of "the 10 million to 15 million undocumented immigrants" already here - "who, let's be honest, will not and should not be forcibly removed" - are the two biggest challenges, they add, and "when prioritizing the immigration problems we face, the case of 200,000 Salvadorans who accepted our invitation to live and work here legally would not even make a Top 10 list".

"The Arizona Republican primary will be nasty, expensive and very long".

But will she convince conservatives? I am a fighter pilot and I talk like one.
