Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio running for Senate seat

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio running for Senate seat

Arpaio was pardoned by Trump past year after he was found guilty of contempt of court for willfully violating a federal judge's order to stop a program of racially profiling Latinos.

He faces stiff competition for the seat in the form of Kelli Ward, a former state senator who already has significant financial backing for a re-run.

Arpaio's announcement on Tuesday makes him the third Arizona Republican to launch a bid for Flake's Senate spot.

The sheriff, who lost his elected sheriff's office previous year after more than two decades, has long floated bids for higher office.

Arpaio said he was a "big supporter of President Trump" in an interview with the Washington Examiner, which first reported the news.

The candidacy of Arpaio represents the political antagonism that will be the protagonist of the parliamentary elections on November 6, where not only will Arizona have to decide between a radical character and possibly the Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema, but the entire country will have to choose between allowing the Republican Party continue to do their thing or give another opportunity to a Democratic Party that still doesn't address the communities that need it most.

The 85-year-old lawman tweeted he is seeking the post to support Trump's policies.

"Write about it now, because it won't last long", Flake said.

Martha McSally are also running to be the GOP nominee for the seat. John McCain, in the race. And McSally, like Luther Strange, is the establishment preference - though Republicans argue McSally, a former fighter pilot who has proven her ability to raise money and win close races, is a stronger candidate.

"It really does seem as if people do not quite appreciate just how evil Joe Arpaio truly is".

Arpaio enters the race with substantial baggage, from his 24 years in office and the presidential pardon.
