I’ll be stationed at Marble with Pat Davis’ watch party. He’s the first and only openly gay male candidate for any U.S. sheriff’s race.
Speaking of, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is endorsing Dan Houston, a Republican in the Bernalillo County sheriff’s race. Arpaio’s done 15 anti-immigrant sweeps since early 2008 and once arrested the founders of an alt.weekly in the AZ after the paper covered his misdeeds extensively.
The Maricopa County sheriff has also endorsed in other races. He put his stamp on: Missouri’s Ed Martin, who’s running for Congress; Sen. John McCain’s opponent J.D. Hayworth; candidate for San Diego sheriff Jay LaSuer; Assembly candidate Etta Waterfield of San Luis Obispo, California; congressional candidate Philip L. Liberatore; and more.
