Democrat Tom O'Halleran beats Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu

Tom O'Halleran defeated Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu on Tuesday in the 1st Congressional District.

Babeu had scant support from national Republicans in the Democratic-leaning district spanning Flagstaff to the Tucson suburbs.

He was dogged by allegations that he oversaw a Massachusetts boarding school where students were abused. He also faced fallout from the 2012 congressional race he quit after scantily clad pictures he posted on a dating website surfaced and a former lover accused him of threats. Babeu was cleared of the threat allegations.

O'Halleran had his own issues to overcome. He was a Republican in the state Legislature from 2001 to 2009, ran for House as an independent in 2014 and registered as a Democrat last year.
