(VIDEO) Former Joe Arpaio Supporters/Republicans now supporting Independent Candidate Mike Stauffer for Maricopa County SheriffThursday, September 20th, 2012
Let’s face it, there are too many Republicans who simply will not vote for a candidate who has a (D) beside their name. Bob Long is a 50 year Republican
who liked some things Arpaio stood for, but also believes it is time for Arpaio to retire.
Bob supports the former Republican — now Independent candidate Mike Stauffer for Maricopa County sheriff.
The demographics in Maricopa County are as follows:
36% registered Republicans voters
35% registered Independents voters
29% registered Democratic voters
Things have changed since 2008. Independents now make up the 2nd largest party in Maricopa County and the Democratic Party has lost approximately 52,000 registered Democratic voters.
Mike Stauffer was the first candidate to put his hat into this race and is the only one with the qualifications to beat Arpaio. Stauffer has no skeletons in his closet unlike Paul Penzone who has a domestic violence history and Glendale Police Report within his background.
See the below video on why Arizona Republican voter is supporting Stauffer.
