READ: Sheriff Arpaio Fundraising For Tom Tancredo's Colorado Campaign: "If Anyone Can Solve America's Immigration Problem, It's Him."

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is putting his fundraising muscle into another campaign today, calling "good friend and fellow immigration crusader" Tom Tancredo the right man to lead Colorado and the nation in solving "America's immigration problem."

(Arpaio's entire fundraising e-mail is below the jump.)

Arpaio, who has already been fundraising for his 2016 reelection campaign and for a Super PAC dedicated to preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming President in 2016, sent out the fundraising e-mail to his vast e-mailing list today on behalf of Tancredo for Governor in 2014.

Tancredo was a Republican Congressman who largely based his campaign for President in 2008 on fighting illegal immigration.  He was an unsuccessful third party candidate for Colorado Governor in 2010, and is currently leading in the Republican primary for a re-match against current Governor John Hickenlooper.

Arpaio calls Colorado "frighteningly soft on illegal aliens", and says that Tancredo is fighting "the liberal elite and Open Borders (caps his) crowd."

Of course, Arpaio has to reference his (self-perpetuated) "America's Toughest Sheriff" nickname, noting that he has "made tremendous inroads in cracking down on immigration across the country as a sheriff (emphasis his).... But think about the impact Tom Tancredo could make as the governor of a state with a self-proclaimed immigration problem!"

Arpaio raised funds for Tancredo's 2010 campaign, as well.

Dear Friend,

When was the last time Washington, DC, solved a problem?

I certainly can't remember, and that's why I'm writing to you with an urgent request today.

My good friend and fellow illegal immigration crusader, Tom Tancredo is running for Governor in Colorado, a state that is frighteningly soft on illegal aliens. Tom needs our help to fight against the liberal elite and Open Borders crowd who are throwing everything they've got into defeating him.

You may remember Tom as the Republican Congressman who made enemies within his own party for opposing President George W. Bush's immigration "reform" efforts (which were, of course, truly amnesty). Like me, Tom has spent his career educating the public about the true dangers of illegal immigration and fighting for a real solution that secures our borders and doesn't let criminals off the hook.

This is why the Washington liberals and the Open Borders crowd want nothing more than to silence Tom. They're spending millions of dollars to defeat him — even some members of his own Party have threatened to support his Democratic opponent if Tom makes the campaign about immigration.

But Tom doesn't scare off that easy, and I know you don't either. That's why I'm asking you to join me in supporting Tom's campaign by donating $25, $50, $100, or more today.

Throughout the years, I've made tremendous inroads in cracking down on immigration across the country as a sheriff. They don't call me "America's Toughest Sheriff" for nothing! But think about the impact Tom Tancredo could make as the governor of a state with a self-proclaimed immigration problem!

Trust me: Tom will make illegal immigration front page news, not just in his home state of Colorado but in all 50 states in America. And, if Washington tries again to grant amnesty, he will bring the fight to our nation's capital—and he won't back down until amnesty is off the table.

But Tom will only succeed if he has the support of conservatives, like you and me, nationwide.

I'm going to do everything I can to help Tom, but he needs your help, too. So, can I count on you to donate $25, $50, $100, or more to Tom's campaign today?

I have no doubt Tom is the man we need to lead us to victory over Washington liberals and the Open Borders crowd. If anyone can solve America's immigration problem, it's him.
