A day before her husband, Sen. Bernie Sanders, was set to hold a presidential campaign rally in Phoenix, Jane Sanders held an impromptu event of her own, verbally sparring with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio before touring his outdoor jail known as Tent City.
Sanders had not planned to tour the inside of Tent City, where inmates are kept in canvas tents. The campaign, in a release, had called conditions in the jail "inhumane."
Sanders stood along the outside of Tent City, peering into it through a fence. Arpaio walked over from a news conference he was holding nearby, greeted her and offered her a tour.
Arpaio let her know that he was a supporter of Donald Trump for president. Sanders let him know she preferred Bernie Sanders.
