Disgraced and recently (perhaps impeachably) pardoned Maricopa County, AZ, former Sheriff Joe “Concentration Camps” Arpiao suggested Monday that he may provide a primary election challenge against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
This is a test that would show whether or not the Arizona Republican Party has seriously lost its ever-freakin’ mind.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, the 85-year-old Arpaio said he’s weighing several options for what to do next now that he’s been pardoned by the president.
“I could run for mayor, I could run for legislator, I could run for Senate,” Arpaio explained.
Arpaio said that a lot of people asked him to challenge Flake in a primary race next year, although he hasn’t made any firm commitment either way yet.
“All I’m saying is the door is open and we’ll see what happens,” he said. “I’ve got support. I know what support I have.”
