Arpaio announces Arizona Senate bid

Tactics events that defined Joe Arpaio's career as sheriff

Arpaio, 85, made the bid official in an interview with the Washington Examiner. "I'm not here to get my name in the paper, I get that everyday, anyway".

Trump pardoned Arpaio of the charge in August. Dr. Kelli Ward, a former Arizona State Senator, announced a run for the seat previous year after unsuccessfully running against Republican John McCain in 2016.

While buying meat at a Deli counter in December, he told a Daily Beast reporter: "No, I would not consider Franks" seat, but I am considering running for the Senate, Flake's seat.

"Sheriff Joe has been a patriot, but at the end of the day in terms of running for this election, Kelli Ward is going to be hard to beat", said Eric Beach, a political strategist for Ward's campaign. "The reality is that Kelly has a lot of momentum in the race".

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced Tuesday that he's joining former state Sen.

Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by just 4 percentage points in Arizona in 2016, making it a much closer race than traditional swing states like Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Virginia.

The controversial lawman whom Donald Trump pardoned past year following a federal conviction for criminal contempt in a racial profiling case.

Trump boasts of being 'a very stable genius'
Wolff claimed he was granted extraordinary access and took up "something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing". Wolff added that he has written "millions upon millions of words", but "I don't think there's been any corrections".

Arpaio's entry into the race could be a boon for Arizona Democrats who will lean on Latino turnout in hopes of winning the Senate race.

The former sheriff is known for his fundraising talents. Arpaio returned to public life, speaking at a fundraiser for a congressional challenger to Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

Arpaio also waved off suggestions his candidacy could tilt the seat to a Democrat - as firebrand conservative Roy Moore's Republican run in Alabama did last December.

"We beat him like a drum in 2016, and we'll beat him like a drum if he runs again", Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., told reporters past year.

Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally is expected to make an announcement she's running for Flake's seat later this week.

Arpaio - whom a judge ruled was in criminal contempt for disobeying a court order against him rounding up individuals suspected of illegal immigration - said he would continue pushing for tougher immigration enforcement.

"As a sheriff, I've done some controversial investigations", said Arpaio, who worked as a DEA agent during the time he coined the idea of a border wall to stop "the drugs that destroy our country".
