Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Endorse Rick Perry Next Week

Arlette Saenz

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., who calls himself “America’s 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...

I find it odd. I lived in Chandler in the 90’s and the sweeps were quite deportational.

I can certainly accept that. Perry remains third on my list, but for me, Cain is the same as Romney. Both are wishy-washy politicians who will not delve into the meaning of their talking points.

I really dislike the way the Cain supporters are playing scorched-earth with anyone and everyone who dares to oppose their candidate or support someone else.

It is the main reason I have been absent so much recently.

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!

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.

Arpaio adopts a tough stance on crime and punishment, which includes housing prisoners in tents, making them wear pink underwear and putting them to work on chain gangs.

I wonder what Joe would do with anti-Perry keyword spam monkeys. :)

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.
http://www.texastribune.org/texas-people/rick-perry/sheriff-arpaio-on-perry-and-the-dream-act/

” 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.”

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.

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. ;-)

PERRY is HARDLY stupid. TEXAS is doing a lot better than the rest of the States. We are SURVIVING the Obama onslaught. Other States Aren’t. Heard econ talking heads discussing the Cities that are getting ready to declared bankruptcy. Perry worked hard to get Texas out of the Boom-bust cycle of the oil industry. Atracking new industry to the State. The U.S would be lucky to have him as President.

Forget the hate thing. Just poking fun at friendly rivals.

I don’t think Arpaio would endorse Perry if he were not sure of his Commitment to sealing that border.

Joe is facing a recall effort, maybe he is looking ahead? The unions won a big one when they successfully recalled the author of their immigration bill, no one is safe from those thugs.

Maybe he is not stupid but he sure does a good job of projecting the image of being stupid. His “heartless” commented showed just how clueless he is.

Perry NEVER said heartless...let's look at the facts.

In June 2011 Debate Newt Gingrich called Americans Heartless for wanting to deport 20 million illegals.

"GINGRICH: No, but let me say this, John. No serious citizen who's concerned about solving this problem should get trapped into a yes/no answer in which you're either for totally selling out protecting America or you're for totally kicking out 20 million people in a heartless way. There are -- there are humane, practical steps to solve this problem, if we can get the politicians and the news media to just deal with it honestly."

I guess that also makes him a bad judge of character, or does it only apply when someone supports Perry?

Wow! A little defensive, aren't we?

I didn't include any judgement, good or bad, in my post. I was just stating established fact.

The good Sheriff knows that Perry means it when he pledges to shut down the border within one year ! Perrry has the right strategy to do it...more boots on the ground, strategic fencing and aerial assets.

We feel sorry for the rest of you whose Governors haven't been as astute about leading their states into prosperity. Just trying to show you the way out and share the wealth.

I don’t understand your point. Yes, Gingrich called people who want the rule of law upheld “heartless” and “inhumane”. So did Perry.
