    Most people know him simply as “Sheriff Joe” - the self-proclaimed toughest lawman in the United States. And, apparently, the five-term boss of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office in Phoenix wants another four years.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio formally announced his re-election campaign Thursday, boasting a record $6 million war chest and promising to “continue to protect the citizens of Maricopa County by enforcing all the laws.” That would include immigration law that has gotten the sheriff and his department crosswise with the Justice Department in Washington.

    It just kills the pro-illegal folks that Arpaio gets elected by huge margins.

    In 2000 he won 66 to 26.
    In 2004 he won against the same opponent 57 to 31.
    The 2007 recall group (read pro-illegal group) failed to collect the 200,000 signatures while Arpaio enjoyed a 64% approval rating.
    In 2008 he won against a new challenger, 55 to 42.
