In a stunning move, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has overtaken former state senator Kelli Ward and is in a virtual dead heat race with Martha McSally in the latest poll out of Arizona.

Following his pardon by President Donald Trump, Arpaio told the Washington Examiner that he was considering a run for the US Senate to represent Arizona.

Now that seems to be taking hold in Arizona.

ABC 15 reports:

A Tuesday poll from ABC15/OHPI shows Joe Arpaio skyrocketing to the top of the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate in Arizona.

 

The poll, conducted the same day Arpaio announced his Senate run, shows the former sheriff with 29% of the vote, a statistical tie with first place candidate Martha McSally at 31%.

 

Former state senator Kelli Ward, who has been the front runner in recent polls, drops to 25% in this latest survey.

 

The poll mirrors initial speculation that Arpaio could edge out Ward and create an opening for McSally, who colleagues have said is planning a Senate run but has not yet made an announcement.

 

Arpaio takes an even more notable jump when considering hypothetical endorsements that candidates may receive.

 

In the survey, a Trump endorsement for Arpaio bumps him up to 35% of the vote, while a McSally endorsement from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brings her to 31%. Ward falls to 13% with a potential endorsement from former Trump strategist Steve Bannon.

The seat being contended for will be abandoned by Senator Jeff Flake, who announced he would not seek re-election in October 2017.  While more conservative than some, Flake has demonstrated that doesn’t always adhere to the conservative line nor the Constitution, as the Freedom Index puts him at 79%.

Flake was also not happy about the pardon that Trump gave Arpaio.

However, Dr. Ward voiced hearty approval for the pardon as she tweeted out, “Thank you, @realDonaldTrump so glad you #pardoned@RealSheriffJoe – a patriot who did the job the Feds refused to do.”

Ward has also received praise from President Trump for her run in Arizona.

The primary to decide nominees will be in August.
