A bi-partisan group of current Arizona Sheriffs and candidates for Sheriff across Arizona are condemning Senatorial candidate Kari Lake for her claim that her Republican Primary opponent Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb is a “coward.”

Lake made the remark in an online political forum hosted by the Arizona chapter of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) for the two Republican Primary contenders for U.S. Senate.

“Kari Lake’s recent comment calling Sheriff Mark Lamb a “coward” is both unfounded and disrespectful. We want to make it clear: neither Sheriff Mark Lamb nor any law enforcement officer who wears a badge and uniform, putting their life on the line every day to protect and serve our communities, is a coward. Arizona voters expect better from a political candidate, especially when they are running for the U.S. Senate.”

The following Arizona Sheriffs and candidates signed the statement: Maricopa County Sheriff Russ Skinner, Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot, Yavapai County Sheriff David Rhodes, Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels, La Paz County Sheriff William Ponce, Graham County Sheriff P.J. Allred, Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster, Gila County Sheriff Adam Shepard, and Navajo County Sheriff David Clouse.

For his part, Sheriff Lamb has responded by accusing Lake of slapping the “face of every man and woman who wears a badge and uniform and upholds our laws.”

Lamb says Lake’s “coward” comment “shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how our justice system works.”

“Those of us in law enforcement deal with bullies like her and much worse every day. No one gets special treatment. Not even Kari Lake. I get it. Kari Lake is upset that she lost her election. It’s time she takes some personal responsibility for losing an election she was supposed to win.” said Lamb.

“While I personally didn’t allow her comment to upset me, as I’ve been called worse, it’s obvious that Kari Lake thinks our justice system and laws exist to benefit her, without regard to evidence or facts,” said Lamb. “I took an oath of office to support and defend the U.S. Constitution and uphold law and justice. I have to deal with facts, not opinions or feelings.”

According to Lamb, he has “received numerous calls and texts from supporters stating that they were appalled by Kari Lake’s comment that I am a “coward” for not doing her bidding regarding the 2022 election results.”

  1. I’m not impressed by this news. And no one else should be. Unfortunately these two candidates think alike. They both seek out counsel that leads them to belittle each other. Worse yet is that this display shows they both lack sound judgment and leadership. META and other leftists couldn’t ask for a more destructive display. IMO Facebook use promotes child like behavior and thinking. Message to both candidates- you both better reboot your campaigns and decide just who your target audience is. Do you want to demonstrate leadership or idiotic behavior. Please have respect for the people of Arizona and the office you seek.

  2. unfortunately Kari has hoof and mouth disease
    great speaker, but not sure if she took kamala lessons

  3. Trump dupe by Lake? He should be endorsing Sheriff Lamb! If the borders are not secured nothing else matters! Lamb is the man to stop the criminal invasion & reckless endangerment of US citizens!
    Everyone I personally know is voting Mark Lamb!

  4. And of course Pima County Sheriff Nanos remains silent, probably because his head is so far up Hobb’s butt that he can neither see, hear or speak anything.

  5. A person whose only gift to the people of Arizona was to read off a teleprompter for decades, to call any law enforcement a coward is probably the most disrespectful thing she could have done. Only because he hasn’t came out and say her election was stolen. LEOs must follow the facts

  6. As a former Sheriff’s Deputy myself, Sheriff Lamb has my vote! I believe he will be the best candidate to represent my interests. Arizona needs someone in the US Senate that really cares about the people of Arizona.

    • Sheriff Lsmb has the best chance to beat Gallego as the McCainiac wing won’t support Lake.

      • We need Mark Lamb as GOVERNOR, after we remove the Hobbit. Kari Lake will have more clout in the Senate. Let’s think ahead, people, and all you anti-Trumpers out there get behind whoever wins the primary.

  7. What a totally stupid remark to make a law enforcement officer whose running against you! Like the man who endorsed you, you don’t know how engage brain before speaking! Sheriff Lamb, I don’t know you or your record as sheriff in your county in Arizona, but you would have my vote!

  8. I get it. Kari Lake is upset that she lost her election. It’s time she takes some personal responsibility for losing an election she was supposed to win.” said Lamb.

    “While I personally didn’t allow her comment to upset me, as I’ve been called worse, it’s obvious that Kari Lake thinks our justice system and laws exist to benefit her, without regard to evidence or facts,” said Lamb.

    YOUR A COWARD ! All you had to do is allow the election to be counted. Would have ‘Solved’ the issue – for ever – and for ‘all Arizonans’ no more maybe’s ‘ it’s the the ELECTION BUTT HEAD. You say it’ ain’t personal – it is with me and “you will NEVER GET MY VOTE” Your on the LAMB Lamb… Git a life.
