Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio declares that he's running for Senate in Arizona

Joe Arpaio, the longtime Phoenix-area sheriff whose headline-grabbing approach to immigration made him an ally of President Donald Trump, will run in the 2018 Republican primary to replace Sen.

President Donald Trump pardoned Arpaio previous year after a judge ruled he violated a court order against rounding up individuals he suspected were in the United States illegally. "I'm a big supporter of President Trump", Arpaio said in an interview with the Washington Examiner.

Joe Arpaio is running to fill Arizona Senator Jeff Flake's vacant seat.

Arpaio's entrance is sure to thrust the Arizona senate race into the national spotlight in August, given the former sheriff's name recognition and close bond with the president.

"I think he brings a great knowledge from his own experience on immigration issues", said Hodgson. But I would not [be] doing this if I thought that I could not win.

"What ego? You guys forgot me the day I left office anyway". Arpaio, who turns 86 this year, is older than any current US senator and would be the oldest freshman senator ever elected.

Welch confirmed with Arpaio spokesman Chad Willems that the former "toughest sheriff in America" will be filing the necessary paperwork with the Secretary of State's Office later today. "You get the same time for barking dogs", Arpaio told Washington Examiner.

He was found guilty of contempt past year by a federal judge for violating a court order to halt immigration-related arrests. Arpaio's criminal conviction came six months after he lost his seat to a Democratic challenger in 2016, and after Trump's pardon, he managed to emerge from the situation unscathed. And photos of Arpaio with presidents, including Trump and Barack Obama, hang on the walls.

"I am outspoken. I'm looking forward to it. Let them come". He was later convicted of criminal contempt for disregarding a court order that said he needed to stop racially profiling Latinos.

Since losing his run for an unprecedented seventh term as Maricopa County's sheriff to Paul Penzone in November 2016, speculation has run rampant about what Arpaio's next chapter might look like. Like Arpaio, Moore had also been found guilty of contempt of court-though his problems at the ballot box also included allegations of molesting children. "In one infamous case, people working under Arpaio staged an assassination attempt against him in order to boost his popularity - framing an innocent man in the process", the AC:LU reports.

Count veteran Republican strategist Chuck Coughlin among those who don't see Arpaio winning the seat - and aren't convinced that he's serious about a Senate run.

Hook asked Arpaio if the battle to clear his name was in preparation for the Senate run.

"His candidacy shows that conservatives in Arizona are fed up with the status quo and know that we need senators who support President Trump and the America First agenda".

"Ward has great respect for Sheriff Joe Arpaio and welcomes him to the race", Rollins said in a release.
