Arpaio far ahead in fundraising in sheriff’s race

Republican Joe Arpaio remains the leader in fundraising in the race for Maricopa County sheriff.

The Republican incumbent raised $457,000 from Aug. 9 through Sept. 17 and had $3.8 million in his re-election campaign fund at the end of the period.

The campaign for Democrat Paul Penzone says it raised $138,000 during that period and finished with $114,000 left over.

A spokesman for Independent Mike Stauffer’s campaign says the candidate’s latest fundraising numbers were unavailable.
