Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio said he has filed election papers to try and win back his former position in Maricopa County.
Arpaio, who was pardoned by President Trump, said he submitted nearly 10,000 petition signatures on Tuesday to the Maricopa County Elections Department to be able to appear on the primary ballot. He said in August he would seek reelection.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I will work tirelessly to earn each and every vote from the people of Maricopa County,” he said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to serving another term as Sheriff in order to bring criminals to justice, protect the citizenry, enforce all the laws, and Make Maricopa County Safe Again.”
“Filed nearly 10,000 signatures for the Rep Primary ballot, 2 times than required. Let me be clear. I am RUNNING to WIN. As the longest serving Sheriff in Maricopa County history 24 years. I look forward as Sheriff to continue serving the public at this crucial time,” Arpaio tweeted Thursday morning.

Arpaio, 87, was accused of “racial profiling” and found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order in 2016, but was later pardoned by President Trump before the court could sentence him.
The Arizona primary is scheduled for August 4.
