The good thing is that Arizona Democrats don't tend to be especially pure and most understand they don't have the luxury of throwing their votes away on silly Green party candidates.

Immigration issues shouldn't dominate in 2018 unless the economy heads seriously south. Arizona was walloped in the housing crisis and Jan Brewer and the Republicans hid their tax increases behind the stupid 'papers please' law. The Democrats do need to make sure they don't make DACA a hill to die on, however. Get something done, but don't make it front page news for months at a time.

Arpaio might be able to raise money out of state, but I wonder how much serious donations will an 85 year old first time Senate candidate will get during a year which is shaping up to be a Democratic wave.
