Rim Country this year finds itself in a completely new congressional district — but incumbent Rep. Paul Gosar hopes we’ll end up with the same congressman — which would be him. However, first he’ll have to get through an already wild Republican primary slated for Aug. 28. Gosar faces Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose campaign has gotten tangled in allegations he threatened to force the deportation of his gay Mexican lover unless his partner promised to keep their year-long relationship a secret. Babeu has admitted that he’s gay, but denied the allegations.
