Independent Voters of America chime in on Mike Stauffer who is running as independent against Sheriff Joe ArpaioWednesday, June 20th, 2012
We have always maintained that Mike Stauffer is the strongest opponent to run against Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Independent voters
make up the 2nd largest party in the State of Arizona and so it makes sense for there to be more independent candidates in our state.
I particularly enjoyed the below opinion from Independent Voters of America and am glad to see them chime in on this key and important national race.
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio Challenged by Independent Candidate Mike Stauffer
Move over Joe Arpaio, there’s an Independent Sheriff candidate in town!
Arizona’s Maricopa County Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio, best known for his outspoken endorsement of the state’s extreme SB 1070 immigration policy and his investigation of President Obama’s citizenship, is being challenged by Independent candidate Mike Stauffer, a former NYPD officer and Scottsdale Police Lieutenant. Two Democratic candidates are also in the race, and one will be the party’s nominee challenging Arpaio and Stauffer after an August primary. Why is it significant that there’s an independent candidate in the race? Because it will offer a thermometer test for the temperature of Arizona’s rapidly growing faction of independent voters, and whether they’ll support Independent candidates for office.
