Joe Shirley to make a third run for Navajo Nation president
Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley Jr. is announcing a third run to lead the largest tribe in the U.S.

Shirley has already served two terms, the limit set by the Navajo Nation constitution. But he will apparently argue that he can run again under Dine Fundamental Law, the Associated Press reported.

At least eight other candidates are in the running. Sharon Clahchischilliage, the director of the Navajo Nation Washington Office, is the second woman in the race.
