Contender Paul Penzone, 45, Democrat for sheriff.

With about a month left in the game, can he overcome a spoiler Independent candidate and Joe's massive campaign war chest to become Maricopa County's next sheriff, ending Arpaio's 20-year reign? Let's hope so. The following pics are from the campaign so far and from Penzone's personal files. Read the full story on Penzone's quest to unseat Arpaio.
