Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio ‘strongly considering’ Senate run

I got this ABC News story via this Baptist Board post. Below is quote from the article:

Controversial former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is “strongly considering” mounting a bid for the U.S. Senate in 2018, he told ABC News Thursday.

Arpaio, 85, was pardoned by President Donald Trump in August after being found guilty in July on criminal contempt charges stemming from his refusal to stop imprisoning suspected undocumented immigrants.

The former sheriff of Maricopa County said he has not spoken with the president about his thoughts of running for the Senate, but added, “if I run, I’m running for him.”
