Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu Gets Another Four Years, According to Early Results

As midnight approaches, and Election Night results are still being processed, some races are too close to call.

But it's pretty certain that Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu will maintain the lead he has all night over his two challengers, Democrat Kevin Taylor and Independent Ty Morgan.

Earlier in the day, Taylor told New Times that he knew that his team ran the best campaign.

"You can't win them all," he said.

WIth 88 out of 102 precincts tallied, Babeu has nabbed 53.46 percent of the vote, about 20 point over Taylor, who sits on 33.83 percent of votes, according to the Arizona Secretary of State website.
