Police unions endorse Sheriff Arpaio for re-election

Posted: Updated:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio picked up two big endorsements Tuesday.

The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, also known as PLEA, and the Arizona Police Association announced Tuesday they are backing Arpaio in the November election.

Arpaio is running against former Phoenix Police Sergeant Paul Penzone, and recent polls show it's the closest race the sheriff has faced to date.

"This is very important to me, it's heartwarming because I've been in law enforcement 50 years and to have your peers support you is important," said Arpaio.

Early voting in Arizona begins on Thursday.
