Paul Gosar Beats Lawmaker-With-a-Shotgun Ron Gould
Republican state Senator Ron Gould will not be bringing his flat-top haircut, cowboy mustache, or his shotgun to Congress -- because he's not going.
Freshman Congressman Paul Gosar will win the race fairly easily, especially since ebmattled Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu opted not to continue his run after he got caught up in Mexican boyfriend drama.
It appears that Babeu will win the Republican primary for sheriff pretty easily, but he did take the reality-show aspect away from the congressional race.
Instead, the race to be the Republican nominee for Arizona's Fourth Congressional District got this:
With about 92 percent of the precincts in, Gosar's up nearly 20 points on Gould.
Gosar's Democratic challenger still hasn't been decided, but Gosar's expected to just waltz back into Congress without much of a struggle because of the heavy dose of Republicans in the district.
