Sheriff Joe Arpaio weighs in on the 2012 GOP candidates

Presidential hopeful Herman Cain will meet with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Phoenix, Arizona today before the two take part in a Republican fundraiser. Cain joins the list of GOP presidential candidates who are trying to win the sheriff's endorsement.

Arpaio, who is the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, is an outspoken critic of illegal immigration who is known for his "tent cities" and immigration raids. He has yet to endorse any candidate for 2010, although he has already met with Michele Bachmann and spoken to Governors Rick Perry and Mitt Romney on the phone.

Today on American Morning, Sheriff Arpaio discusses the 2012 GOP race with Christine Romans, explaining what the candidates need to do to win over Republicans in Arizona.
