PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is resigning as secretary of Homeland Security, leading to questions of who will replace her.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sent out this tweet today, "With 50 yrs exp, think Obama will call me for DHS post? I was DEA chief, Turkey, Mexico, L. America & TX - AZ borders!"

"It's sort of a sarcastic, generate some interest. I don't expect him to call, but if he does call, maybe I will consider it," Arpaio said.

Napolitano was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2008.
