PHOENIX - Sheriff Joe Arpaio endorsed Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. And now that he's suspended his president campaign, Arpaio says America's loss is Texas's gain.

"I really have a lot of respect for him. I think it's a big loss to our country," he said. "But that's the way politics is and he'll still be the governor of Texas."

Arpaio supported Mitt Romney during the 2008 presidential race but hasn't decided if he will endorse Romney again.

The sheriff says Perry got off to a bad start, but liked his stance on the border issue.
