Joe Arpaio points to political traits he shares with Trump

Joe Arpaio

"Every Democratic voter should give a dollar to Arpaio's primary campaign because nobody energizes Latino voters nationally better than Joe Arpaio", said Rep. Luis Gutiérrez of IL, a retiring Democrat who is considering a 2020 presidential run.

The former sheriff announced his plan to run for the Senate less than a year after he was convicted of criminal contempt - a crime for which Trump pardoned Arpaio in August, after holding a rally in Phoenix.

"I don't know. If I did, I wouldn't know what office to run for", said Arpaio about his response he gave at the time of the question.

Arpaio was pardoned by President Trump after his conviction. He endorsed Trump just before the first votes in the Iowa caucuses previous year and frequently spoke out on behalf of Trump's campaign.

"You always take the sheriff seriously!" former Arizona GOP Chairman Randy Pullen told Newsmax.

National Republicans have landed their top recruit for the seat: Rep. Martha McSally is set to holds events Friday in Tucson, Phoenix and Prescott where she'll make what's being billed as a "special announcement".

The Arizona Senate candidate responded, "No doubt about it". Kelli Ward, in the GOP primary. Bobblehead dolls of Arpaio and Trump stand side by side atop a shelf. Arpaio's entry could hurt her chances.

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. Trump's endorsement of Arpaio would bump him up to 35 percent, McConnell's endorsement of McSally would put her at 31 percent and Bannon's endorsement of Ward would place her at 13 percent.

Trump posted a favorable tweet about Ward, after she visited his Mar-a-Lago, Fla., resort around Christmas, but he has not formally backed her.

Cuomo addressed Arpaio's controversial six-term tenure as Maricopa County sheriff, during which inmates were jailed in outdoor tents, forced to wear pink underwear, and given only two meals a day.

Arpaio said he would accept a Trump endorsement but wouldn't seek it. She also is seen as a strong GOP contender if she runs. He also said the president had not asked him to run for the Senate. "I'm not going to go into all the details".
