Wasting No Time - Draft Arpaio For Senate Effort Starts Day Kyl Announces Retirement

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio running to replace Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)?  That is what the freelancing "Defend Sheriff Joe" organization is proposing.  The 527 tax-exempt organization, run by former Paradise Valley Mayor Vernon Parker, e-mailed their list this afternoon, asking for people to contribute $25,000 before Monday as a "money bomb" that will convince the Sheriff to run.  The full text of the e-mail is below the jump.

The Defend Sheriff Joe organization collected nearly $100,000 last year, and spent only $18,000;  reaching their goal would bring their balance back up to the six-figure mark.  $15,000 of the money was spent on political consultant Nathan Sproul's Lincoln Strategy Group.

The text of the "Draft Sheriff Joe Today" e-mail follows.
 Dear Patriots,

This morning Senator Jon Kyl announced he will not run for reelection, opening up a seat for U.S. Senate here in Arizona. We want to know if you will support a Draft Sheriff Joe for US Senate Campaign.

We are launching a pre-Valentine's Day money bomb to raise $25,000 at Show your love and support for Sheriff Joe by contributing online today. Let's make this an easy decision for the Sheriff.

Contributions to the money bomb will be used to show Sheriff Joe there is massive support for his run for Senate. Now is the time to send a lawman to the Senate to secure our borders and stop this illegal alien invasion.

Many politicians are considering a run for the seat, and we want to show Sheriff Joe and the public that we will do whatever it takes to support is candidacy. Help us reach our goal by contributing today.

Then spread the word about our money bomb. Let's show Sheriff Joe there is support out there for his candidacy.

Please visit and help us raise $25,000 by Monday. Together, we can convince Sheriff Joe to run for Senate and force Barack Obama and the pro-amnesty Senate to deal with a new Sheriff in the US Senate!
