Share

Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff who engaged in racial profiling in search of undocumented immigrants, housed prisoners in an infamous tent city, and alleged that President Barack Obama's Hawaii birth certificate was a fake, is running for U.S. Senate.

On Tuesday, Arpaio formally announced his candidacy for the open Senate seat vacated by Senator Jeff Flake (R-Arizona), a top Republican critic of Trump who railed against the president in his fiery retirement speech on the Senate floor in October.

The Arizona Senate race is heating up with the latest announcement that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is throwing his hat into the ring.

The 85-year-old says "fresh blood" is needed in Washington and that he has not spoken to President Trump about his decision to run.

"I'd have a lot of fun".

"America's toughest sheriff" who dodged a possible jail sentence thanks to President Trump's pardon - launched a campaign for U.S. Senate yesterday. They'd say they don't know where their home country is, so let them go there and spend six months, because it might take that long to do paperwork to get them here legally and let them see their home country and see what it's really like.

"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. "But, if you're going to come across that border, you should be arrested and get the consequences of it", Arpaio said.

Last year, he was convicted of criminal contempt of court for intentionally disobeying a 2011 court order in an immigration case.

A source in Arizona told The Hill reporter Scott Wong that many are viewing Arpaio's Senate campaign as a "cash grab for donations" to offset legal fees he accumulated when he was found guilty of criminal contempt of court in July.

On Aug. 17, President Trump lent his support to Ward via Twitter.

Flake, Arpaio, Ward and McSally are all Republicans.

The jail, which Arpaio once called "a concentration camp", particularly targeted and neglected Latinx inmates.
