PINAL COUNTY - Pinal County Sheriff, Paul Babeu announced this morning he is ending his congressional campaign and will seek re-election as sheriff.
In a letter posted on his website, Babeu said the decision came in part because his supporters asked him to contine to work on their behalf because more work needed to be done.
Part of the statement read, "Many Pinal residents have asked me to stay as their Sheriff and continue this fight. Many worried that my voice and impact would be lost if elected as one of 435 members of Congress. I was elected because I listen and respond to the people I represent."
