Breaking: Joe Arpaio Declares Run for US Senate from Arizona

On Tuesday January 9, retired Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio declared his run for the Senate Seat currently held by Republican Jeff Flake.

“I am running for the U.S. Senate from the Great State of Arizona, for one unwavering reason: to support the agenda and policies of President Donald Trump in his mission to Make America Great Again.”
