Sheriff, County Attorney push Pearce run

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas are helping State Rep. Russell Pearce's congressional run against U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake.

Arpaio and Thomas will headline a Nov. 17 fundraiser for Pearce's Republican primary challenge of Flake for his East Valley congressional seat.

Pearce, along with Thomas and Arpaio, take a hard-line position on illegal immigration and border controls. Pearce is the main architect of the state's controversial employer sanctions law. He

favors a border wall and wants local police to enforce immigration laws.

Thomas and Arpaio have been beefed up enforcement of state human smuggling laws aimed at immigration and pledge to enforce the employer sanctions law when it goes into effect in January.

That’s not my CD mine used to be Kolbe’s until the traitors in the State Pubbie party didn’t like that we elected someone other than their “selected” as our party candidate and wouldn’t fund Randy Graff’s campaign or support it; so we ended up with DemoRat Gabbie Giffords in CD-8.

Arpaio is a grandstanding RINO. He endorsed the rodent liberal Butch Napolitano for Governor.

With Tom Tancredo retiring from Congress, we are going to need Russell Pearce in there fighting for border security.
