Casa Grande Dispatch Endorses Sheriff Paul
In the 1st Congressional District, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu won a crowded Republican primary race and faces Democrat Tom O’Halleran of Sedona, who earlier served in the Legislature as a Republican. Ironically, Babeu’s Pinal political machine unraveled at the same time, as candidates he backed for county office lost.
Babeu faces a tough battle in the Democratic-leaning district. We have opposed some of his actions in the past, but we endorse him because he would vote for Paul Ryan or another Republican for speaker instead of Nancy Pelosi. When she and the Democrats controlled the House, Obamacare and other ill-advised legislation was passed.
