Steven Seagal May Run for Arizona Governor to Secure Border


Steven Seagal is a 61-year-old actor and member of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s civilian “posse” who says he is ready to run for Arizona governor on a platform of increasing border security.

Seagal has been deputized “with sheriff’s offices in New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana.”

According to CBS Las Vegas, the actor spent a lot of time with Arpaio while filming “Steven Seagal–Lawman: Maricopa County,” and emerged from that thinking about the need to secure the border. He says he discussed his thoughts on a gubernatorial bid with Arpaio but did not provide details of that discussion.
