New Sheriff Coming to Washington? Paul Babeu Forms Congressional Exploratory Committee

National Sheriff of the Year and Arizona Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has formed a Congressional exploratory committee, saying Washington D.C. is broken and lacks leadership.

It’s clear that Washington is broken.

To fix it, we’ll need leaders unafraid to make tough decisions. Leaders more concerned with the next generation than the next election. That’s why today I’m announcing an exploratory committee for the United States Congress.

I believe the real deficit in Washington is one of leadership. Nearly three years after the 800 billion dollar stimulus disaster, one in ten Americans is unemployed. In some of our communities, that number is more than double. Meanwhile we have a 14 trillion dollar national debt, with budgets in the red as far as the eye can see.

Arizona is ground zero in the fight against drug and human smuggling. Rather than secure our border and enforce the law, what did we see from our Federal government? Signs in my county warning Americans to stay away, because the cartels were in control; a lawsuit against the people of Arizona; a declaration that the border is more secure than ever. Meanwhile, 400,000 people unlawfully enter our state every year, tens of thousands with criminal records, some from nations that sponsor terrorism.

Now we find that our own Federal government in operation Fast and Furious put 2,000 guns in the hands of the most dangerous criminals in North America. These guns have been found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, and hundreds of crime scenes in Mexico.

I believe it may be time for a new Sheriff in Washington.

What do you think? If I run for Congress, you can be sure that Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama and the liberal fundraising juggernaut led by George Soros will do everything they can to stop us. They’ll spend whatever it takes.

Babeu has been on the front lines in the fight against illegal immigration as Pinal County sees more human and drug trafficking than any other sector along U.S.-Mexico border. If Babeu takes the leap from exploratory to filing for Congress, he will be deeply missed as a Sheriff, but would make a substantial difference in Congress. He would be a great addition to the House Homeland Security Committee.
