The campaign promise comes on the heels of a tough, new law aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration in Arizona and is sure to rile federal officials who have harshly criticized the Arizona law.

Pruitt, a minor league baseball team owner, is facing former Gov. Frank Keating’s son-in-law, Ryan Leonard, in the primary.

Pruitt plans a promise to “hold the federal government accountable for all expenses the state incurs,” campaign consultant Terry Allen told Fox News, including in jails, schools, medical facilities and more.
