Two Republicans challenge Gosar to represent Rim Country

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.

Babeu has admitted that he’s gay, but denied the allegations.
