Yesterday, Arizona’s GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward asked in a tweet whether or not Maricopa County, which is the 4th most populous county in the U.S., should be broken down.
Arizona GOP State Senator Wendy Rogers quote tweeted Ward and declared, “1,000 times yes. I will propose this bill unless someone else beats me to it.”
Rogers acknowledged, however, that she “Will probably have to order a study first to see how we would do it.”
In Ward’s tweet, she asked, “Do you think Maricopa County is too large and should be broken down into several smaller counties?”
Ward also shared a link which provided the population of every county in the state, which shows that the county is nearly three times larger than the next closest county, Pima, and larger than the rest of the population of the state combined by over 1 million.
