Joe Arpaio Running for Ariz. Senate

President Trump’s close ally, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, is throwing his hat in the ring for an Arizona Senate seat.
The former Maricopa County sheriff — known for his tough stance on illegal immigration — made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday.

The Republican said he’s entering into the race solely to support President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda.
“I have fought on the front line to prevent illegal immigration, and I know Donald Trump will stand with me and other crowds of Americans to secure our border,” stated Arpaio.
The sheriff is looking to take over outgoing GOP senator Jeff Flake’s seat, who has been a harsh critic of the president.
The 85-year-old has several challengers in the race, including Republicans Kelli Ward and Martha McSally.
