Flake abandoned his 2018 re-election campaign after coming under criticism from President Trump.

"Deport them", Arpaio said when asked about undocumented immigrants who were brought to the children.

"No, no, no, no. Nobody will talk about it", he continued. "He floats it out there for a while and then pulls back". I know this isn't going to be easy.

President Trump's pardon last August said, "Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now 85 years old, and after more than 50 years of admirable service to our nation, he is a worthy candidate for a presidential pardon".

"It's too early to speculate who's going to win, who's not going to win", Gardner said on MSNBC, adding, "I think that is a conversation much further down the road". Arpaio said. "He didn't have the guts to face the people to get re-elected".

"What ego? You guys forgot me the day I left office anyway".

Arpaio was spared a possible jail sentence a year ago when President Trump pardoned his conviction for disobeying a judge's order in an immigration case.

Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he shares some of the qualities that have made President Donald Trump an effective politician.

The immigration firebrand's entrance into the Arizona race could have far-reaching consequences for the party, as Arpaio's views will likely receive an outsize megaphone.

While former presidential contender Mitt Romney may be willing to campaign in a safe Republican state like Utah, more challenging states are having a hard time finding appealing Republicans to run at all. That would be Rep. Martha McSally. McSally is more closely aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who listed her as a top recruit.

As for that pesky criminal contempt conviction, Arpaio dismissed it as a no-big-deal misdemeanor rooted in cheap partisan politics. The case was later dismissed.

During the next 23 years, Arpaio built his reputation as the "World's Toughest Sheriff" by treating his prisoners as prisoners instead of guests. Arpaio told The Associated Press at his office in a Phoenix suburb.

Because of his reputation, Arpaio would be a highly controversial figure running in the Republican primary.

Arpaio gained notoriety for setting up his infamous "Tent City", an outdoor jail where it was common for temperatures to go up into the triple-digits in the Arizona desert heat. But the teeth of SB 1070 consisted of requiring that state law-enforcement officers attempt to determine an individual's immigration status during a "lawful stop, detention or arrest" when there is reasonable suspicion that the individual is an illegal immigrant. The president won Arizona by a mere 4 points in 2016, and the population is about 15 percent Latino. "His loss for the sheriff's race is a bellwether for his Senate race in a general election".
