Joe Arpaio will run for Arizona Senate 'to support Trump'

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's running for the open U.S. Senate seat in his home state of Arizona so he can support President Donald Trump, who pardoned him past year after Arpaio was convicted of disobeying a judge's order barring him from detaining suspected undocumented immigrants.

Arpaio was convicted last July of criminal contempt in a racial profiling case that highlighted tensions over us immigration policy, but was pardoned by Trump the following month.

Polling released on Tuesday by ABC15 TV in Phoenix shows Arpaio "skyrocketing to the top of the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate in Arizona", with a hypothetical Trump endorsement bumping his support even higher.

The Senate seat became vacant after Republican Senator Jeff Flake, a strong critic of President Trump, said in November he would not seek re-election.

Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio is running for U.S. Senate. "You know what, I'll make a prediction: I think he's going to be just fine, OK?" But I would not being doing this if I thought that I could not win.

"I'm not here to get my name in the paper", he said. Many also dismissed talk that he might run for U.S. Senate. The closest Doocy got to mentioning Arpaio's checkered past was when he introduced him as "known for being tough on immigration".

Mr Arpaio said immigrants should be proud of where they come from and that, "everybody would be happy, you deport them and then let them come back with all their education here".

Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's running for Senate in Arizona to push Trump agenda

Arpaio, who campaigned for Trump in 2016, was convicted on July 31 of a year ago. "I just want to do everything I can to support our president". The controversial pro-Trump former sheriff did manage to earn the support of the remaining 225 precincts that supported McCain's bid.

Arpaio will challenge former state Sen.

In the early 1990s, Arpaio directed construction of a tent city for immigration detainees, a measure he said was intended both to alleviate overcrowding and to underscore his aggressive enforcement measures. Martha McSally, a USA representative for Arizona who has already suggested she would run, has scheduled "special announcement" events for Friday.

The 85-year-old ex-Arizona sheriff was found guilty of violating a 2011 order to stop detaining migrants.

Trump said Arpaio would have won again in 2016 had the filing of charges not influenced voters. People may say I'm insane. "Why don't they say that I should make a good candidate".

Arpaio enters the race with substantial baggage, from his 24 years in office and the presidential pardon. "President Trump needs my help in the Senate", Arpaio said in a statement posted on his campaign's website.
