Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R) “has given several interviews to a publication that traffics in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”

Arpaio “declined an opportunity Wednesday to distance himself from the extremist material.

"Arpaio, who lost his 2016 re-election bid for sheriff, said he was unfamiliar with other stories on the American Free Press website, such as an interview with the author of an anti-Semitic book that was headlined Jewish Fingerprints All Over 9-11. But Arpaio declined to criticize the site or other anti-Semitic content associated with the publication.” (USA Today)

Former state Sen. Kelli Ward (R) and Rep. Martha McSally (R-02) are also running for the GOP nod to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R).
