Republican Joe Arpaio has raised more campaign money than his opponents in the Maricopa County sheriff’s race.

Joe Arpaio is running for another term as Maricopa County Sheriff after losing the re-election to Democrat Paul Penzone in 2016.

The former six-term sheriff raised $351,000 from October through December and had a total of $656,000 in campaign funds at the beginning of 2020.

Sheriff Paul Penzone, the Democrat who defeated Arpaio in 2016, reported $151,000 in contributions during the three-month period and has $270,000 in campaign funds.

Jerry Sheridan, who is challenging Arpaio in the Republican primary, had $14,000 in contributions during that period. Sheridan, who worked under Arpaio in the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in the past, had $39,000 at the end of 2019.
