Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's still considering a Senate campaign in Arizona following the decision by incumbent Republican Sen. Jeff Flake not to seek re-election.
Arpaio, who in August became the first person pardoned by President Trump after he was convicted of misdemeanor contempt, previously said he was considering a primary challenge against Flake.
"It's still out there, I haven't made a decision," he told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, shortly after Flake's announcement.
The former sheriff said he met twice recently with Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who has sought to recruit anti-establishment Senate candidates.

If only he were twenty years younger.
He needs to stay out! He’s too old and would muddy the Republican waters and perhaps cost us the seat. Trump needs to give him a job. Again, if it weren’t for his age, I’d have seen him as FBI Director.
Love Joe but not a good idea
We need this Senate seat to go to a Conservative who is going to be there more than 4 years.
Sherif Joe only has 4 good years left.
Better choice than Kelli Ward, IMHO.
Joe go make $$$$ rain on worthy young candidates.
Not to run for Jeff Flake’s seat, but seek appointment for the very next vacancy for US Senator representing Arizona, which should open up very soon now (money is on January 2018).
I am sure there is an over/under pool on a specific event occurring in that time frame.
I like Arpaio as much as the next solid conservative, but I think he needs to stay out of the Senate. They can get someone a little younger in his place.
NO. Get serious.
Love Joe but not a good idea
Love ya, Sheriff Joe, but yer a bit long in the tooth to be running for the Senate now.
I hope djt gives joe another job. Maybe manager at immigration
“Love Joe but not a good idea”
I agree. Love ya Joe and have supported you in the past but it is time to hang them up.
At 85 years of age, he needs to spend time taking
care of his wife and get out of the lime light.
Ego over common sense. 85 is just too old.
An 86 year old running for a six year Senate term? Not a good plan.
Sheriff Arpaio ping...
