FLORENCE, Ariz. — Gay former U.S. congressional candidate and conservative sheriff Paul Babeu has defeated his GOP primary opponents, according to the AP, and will likely serve another four-year term as the “top cop” in Pinal County, despite controversy.

Babeu made headlines when a former boyfriend outed the then-Romney campaign Arizona co-chair, alleging Babeu threatened to have the Mexican national deported if their relationship were to be revealed. After an investigation, the Arizona attorney general’s office cleared the tough-on-immigration sheriff of wrongdoing last Friday.
