Joe Arpaio Foe Paul Penzone Scores Endorsements of Paul Charlton, Others
|Joe-foe Paul Penzone, racking up endorsements....|
Ex-Phoenix Police Sergeant Paul Penzone, the man running as a Democrat against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, recently announced a slew of new endorsements via his campaign website, the most prominent of which comes from former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Paul Charlton, a Republican and stalwart critic of Sheriff Joe.
Other endorsements of note come from the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association, Arizona state Representative Ruben Gallego, former Arizona Diamondbacks and Phoenix Suns executive Rich Dozer, and businessman and Democratic rainmaker Fred DuVal.
The announcement states that this is "the first of series of planned endorsements," signalling that Penzone has been busy racking up backers from all sides, perhaps to give a not-so subtle nudge to Scottsdale Police Lieutenant and Independent Mike Stauffer that he should bail from the race.
