By Paul Johnson

Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) - The self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America won a sixth term in office.
Incumbent Republican Joe Arpaio beat out his challengers in the Maricopa County sheriff's race in Arizona.
Arpaio issued a warning to his opponents during his victory speech Tuesday night. And by the way, for those critics out there, I'm gonna say right now, in January I'm signing up for 2016, so I'm not a lame duck. So I'm saying that right now. Arpaio has been at the center of several federal lawsuits over the past few years. He also has a history of friction with minorities in his state.
Arpaio says he wants to meet with the Latino community to explain what his department does.
