Former Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio dismissed criticism from Sen. Jeff Flake Wednesday morning, telling Fox News that “at least I got the guts to face” voters in this year’s midterm elections.
“I know he doesn’t like me. But who cares? He’s not running. He’s saying that I’m not going to last more than a month. That I’ll leave,” Arpaio said in an interview with Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning.
“Well what about him leaving? He didn’t have the guts to face the people to get reelected. At least I got the guts to face all the detractors, the Democratic party, you name it. So he can have his opinion. I got mine. It doesn’t bother me at all.”
