Dr. Ben Carson has endorsed Paul Babeu, the tough-talking sheriff of Arizona's Pinal County, for U.S. Congress.

Sheriff Paul Babeu is a man of incredible character who knows how to secure our border and keep Arizonans safe," Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon who ran for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, said Tuesday on his Facebook page.

"I know when he gets to Congress he will work tirelessly to improve our economy and bring real border security to America. I know Sheriff Babeu will do a great job representing Arizona in Congress and he has my full support."

Babeu, the Republican nominee for Arizona's 1st congressional district, is facing Democrat Tom O'Halleran, a former Chicago police officer and bond trader who served in the Arizona legislature.

The 47-year-old Iraqi war veteran was voted "Sheriff of the Year" in 2011 by his colleagues in the National Sheriff's Association.
