"The generosity of our supporters is overwhelming," Babeu said. "All across District 4, voters are joining our campaign to control the debt, secure the border, and defend the Constitution. I promise to represent them with integrity in Washington."
Meanwhile, District 1 Congressman Paul Gosar, who is switching districts to challenge Sheriff Babeu in CD 4, continues to mislead voters. After claiming to be a fiscal conservative then voting to raise the debt ceiling and urging the Super Committee to raise taxes on Arizonans, Gosar continued to misrepresent the truth this week.
While trying to explain his poor fundraising performances, Gosar, who only raised $115K, told the Arizona Republic that Sheriff Babeu was relying on "out-of-state donors." In fact, it appears the opposite is true.
According to the FEC website, Sheriff Babeu raised 70% of his funds in Q1 from Arizona voters, while Gosar had 51% of his contributions come from "out-of-state donors" including over $30K from out-of-state PACs.
Paul Babeu is running for the United States Congress in Arizona's newly created 4th District. Babeu is America's Sheriff of the Year, as voted by his colleagues in the National Sheriff's Association. As Sheriff, he reduced his budget by 10% while decreasing response times to emergencies by 50%. As a police officer, he was awarded two medals for saving lives, and served as President of the Chandler Law Enforcement Association. A retired Major in the United States Army National Guard, he commanded Task Force Yuma, which reduced illegal border crossings by 94%, and served a tour of duty in Iraq.
