Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., who calls himself Americas Toughest Sheriff, will endorse Texas Gov. Rick Perry next week, a source with knowledge of the endorsement told ABC News.
Arpaio espouses a hard-line stance on illegal immigration, leading raids to round up and jail illegal immigrants, and was a major proponent of the controversial Arizona immigration law. Perry has spoken with Arpaio several times over the phone since entering the presidential race.
Arpaio, a much sought after endorsement in the GOP field, plans to campaign with Perry in New Hampshire next week, the source said. The Texas governor will be in the Granite State Tuesday and Wednesday, holding three town halls and a breakfast at the Nashua Chamber of Commerce along with speaking at the New Hampshire State House...

Thanks, Sheriff. Common sense may be slow but it’s sure.
Smoothsailing, did you just happen to be bored tonight and couldn’t find a zombie movie with heads exploding on TV, or did you just want to post this news article for its news relevance? LOL
Actually, I just saw that Sheriff Arpaio will be campaigning with Perry next week in NH as well!
Sheriff Arpaio to campaign with Perry
Bwahahahaha! A few people around here are gonna lose their minds.
You can’t be an effective and GOOD sheriff if you’re a bad judge of character. Perhaps you are the one who can’t see things straight.
A bad dye job can be fixed. A lack of integrity and core convictions usually can’t by Newt’s age.
gonna??? As in future tense?
In an interview Arpaio ridiculed the notion that The Dream Act
( passed in 2001 by the Texas legislature with a veto proof majority including overwhelming conservative support )
would stop him from endorsing Perry.
” You think the Dream Act is going to stop me ?
I don’t care either way.
You gotta look at the whole picture.
What kind of president he will make.
Not just because he’s for or against the Dream Act.”
“So Sheriff Joe is now gullible? lol”
Unfortunately, yes. It would be interesting to know the line of BS Perry fed him.
I LOVE this. THE PERRY HATERS ARE RUNNING TO CHANGE THEIR TIGHTY WHITIES. Sheriff Arpaio is on the front lines an knows WHO will actually fight for American Security by closing that border to illegals and terrorists.
You’re funny... did you forget that Cain had “things swirling around in his head” amesia?
I still like Joe even though I disagree with him on this point. Perry is stupid and Obama will kill him in debates.
This is different. I don’t know where I fall in the candidate hate-don’t hate group, but this alliance is very good for Perry. Sheriff Joe has had a very good run yet he is undergoing a recall effort right now. I am on his mail list.
Hugging themselves. Rocking back and forth. Talking to imaginary friends. ;p
Any police officer can have moments when they misjudge character and in Sheriff Joe’s case, I believe this is one of those moments.
By the way, my eyesight is just fine thank you. ;-)
LOL!!! The anti-Perry flaming keyword spam monkey zombies have invaded this thread! :o)
.(Am I supposed to string garlic up, or something?)
Thanks for the post and link, I didn’t know Joe had said that. :)
