Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's running for the Senate in Arizona

Arpaio's decision to run shakes up Senate race in Arizona

After 12 months of constant attacks against the communities of color and immigrants in the country on the part of the Trump Administration, the controversial ex-sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio, has chose to add his name to the race for the Senate in 2018.

For the president, therefore, to persecute immigrants is an "admirable service".

Arpaio, dubbed "America's toughest sheriff" as a result of his proactive enforcement of illegal immigration, drew media attention after he was pardoned by President Donald Trump a year ago.

"I think Washington needs me, the president needs me", the ex-sheriff argued.

"I have a lot to offer. We'll see what happens", he told Talking Points Memo.

The sheriff, who lost his elected sheriff's office a year ago after more than two decades, has long floated bids for higher office. Brutal police tactics, racial profiling and his ignorance of the judicial orders, were just some of the reasons why he was convicted in early 2017, until President Trump made a decision to pardon him, in a gesture of gratitude for his loyalty. Kelli Ward (R-Ariz.) in the Republican primary. As member station KJZZ reports, former state Sen.

Arpaio tweeted Tuesday he is seeking the post to support Trump's agenda "in his mission to Make America Great Again". Chris Murphy, D-Conn., sent out an email to his supporters asking for campaign cash for him and for Arpaio's Democratic challenger, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Arpaio attempted to whitewash his history of mistreating immigrants by claiming he has a "soft spot" for the Mexican community.

"Every Democratic voter should give a dollar to Arpaio's primary campaign because nobody energizes Latino voters nationally better than Joe Arpaio", said Rep. Luis GutiƩrrez of IL, a retiring Democrat who is considering a 2020 presidential run.

"This started under Obama and Holder 60 days after they took office and it took them all these years to get me on a contempt of court charge, a misdemeanor". In 2017, Arpaio was found guilty of contempt of court for defying a judge's orders to stop detaining individuals exclusively on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.

Arpaio enters the race with substantial baggage, from his 24 years in office and the presidential pardon. "Why don't they say that I should make a good candidate".

Arpaio, not content with his pardon, is still fighting to have the conviction completely erased from his record.
