Controversial Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio Running for Senate in Arizona

He is one of the country's most polarizing political figures and now Joe Arpaio is entering the Arizona Senate race.

The former Arizona county sheriff has told the Washington Examiner that he plans to throw his hat into the ring for the Arizona Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Jeff Flake.

Arpaio gained popularity among immigration hardliners during his time as Maricopa County sheriff, representing the Phoenix area, proudly calling himself "America's toughest sheriff" and touting a strict approach to border security.
