This should prove to be an interesting race. It's a test between populists, traditional Republicans and includes a woman who isn't just an "anyone but a straight, White male" candidate.

Meanwhile, in Democrat land, they are fawning over Oprah Winfrey... I can see the obesity epidemic taking off and abruptly receding every 6 months or so. We'll have a booming economy as long as its built around grocery store check out line magazines...

There's some pretty good reasons why Maricopa County didn't re-elect this pile in 2016:

> As Arpaio shifted from stopping violent criminal offenses to rounding up random aliens, an investigation by the East Valley Tribune revealed that police “response times, arrest rates, investigations and other routine police work throughout Maricopa County have suffered.”

> Meanwhile, Arpaio’s MCSO fudged reports to make it appear as if they were clearing more cases than they actually were, with the Justice Department concluding that there was “an increase in violent crime in Maricopa County, and of homicides in particular, during the period of enhanced immigration enforcement.”

> Clint Bolick, a conservative who is now Associate Justice on the Arizona Supreme Court, released analyses showing that Arpaio was misleading the public about the degree to which his anti-immigration shift had damaged his ability to solve serious crimes.

> Trump said Arpaio “has protected people from crimes and saved lives.” But this is precisely what he didn’t do, or at least what he could have done far more of if he hadn’t been busy doing the thing Trump pardoned him for.
