Joe Arpaio a Rising Star for Flake's Seat in Arizona

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, now running for Senate, is indeed standing by his years-long promotion of the insane conspiracy theory about Barack Obama's birth certificate.

"We have the evidence", he said.

Rep. Martha McSally, the preference of national Republicans in the race to replace retiring Republican Jeff Flake, is also set to enter the race this week. Jeff Flake's U.S. Senate seat Tuesday.

Arpaio noted his focus on immigration enforcement, a knack for saying things that would damage the careers of other politicians and a talent for garnering news coverage.

A huge proponent of Trump's immigration policies, Arpaio now appears to be taking up the cause to unmask the "conspiracy of Obama's birth" while he embarks on a campaign for the Arizona Senate seat. He was convicted past year of criminal contempt for defying a court order to stop racially profiling Latinos but was pardoned by President Donald Trump, whose presidential campaign Arpaio had supported, in August before serving any jail time.

In another earlier interview Wednesday with WABC radio hosts Rita Cosby and Curtis Sliwa, Arpaio went so far as to say, "I want to get it to Congress so they can pass some type of law, regulation, that when somebody runs for President, you oughta check their background, so this won't happen again".

Ward is supported by a super PAC funded by the GOP megadonor Mercer family.

"People are not going to vote for me just being pro-Trump", Arpaio said.

Winter storm headed into San Diego Monday night
A winter storm is bringing rain and high winds to San Diego County Tuesday but some communities may see showers beginning Monday. The region, which has been nearly completely dry this winter, was expected to get as much as 4 inches of rain by early Tuesday.

In a Wednesday night interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN, Arpaio said there was "no doubt" Obama's birth certificate is fake.

Ward, who lost a 2016 GOP primary to Sen.

Until now, the Republican front-runner in the race has largely been considered to be Kelli Ward, a former state senator.

Trump posted a favorable tweet about Ward after she visited his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida around Christmas, but he has not formally backed her.

Arpaio told supporters in a fundraising email that he'd filed the paperwork to run in Arizona's late-August Republican primary. Arpaio's entry could hurt her chances.

Arpaio announced Tuesday that he is running for the Arizona US Senate seat now occupied by Sen.

Democratic U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema also has positioned herself as a moderate candidate.
