Joe Arpaio the beleaguered former Sheriff of Arizona has thrown in his hat for the senate seat which is being vacated by jeff flake. Arpaio is not a stranger to derisive battles having been a staunch supporter of ending illegal immigration for 24 years while holding the Sheriff position. He has shown himself as a tough firebrand and a no nonsense figure.
He has meet strong opposition from the past democratically controlled administrations but he has endured. His last bout was being convicted of ignoring a federal court order in a racial profiling case but he was pardon by our sitting President.
