Imagine living in a state that not only has America’s toughest sheriff, but also has one of the top tough-guy heroes in Hollywood as governor.

While discussing his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County,” the action-movie star told the local ABC affiliate he would remotely consider a run for Arizona governor

In the new show, the actor and martial arts expert teams up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America.

During the interview with ABC15, Seagal said he’s had discussions with Arpaio about a potential run, but does have other priorities to consider.

When asked what the country’s number one problem was, Seagal’s response was “open borders.”

“I think that our biggest problem is open borders,” he said. “I think that across these borders, any kind of terrorism can come, and does come. I think this is a tremendous oversight by the current administration.”

That Seagal invoked Ronald Reagan in his analogy certainly won’t harm his chances, should he make the foray into politics.
