According to the AP . . .

First-term Republican Rep. Paul Gosar says he plans to seek office in Arizona’s 4th Congressional District instead of his Flagstaff-based 1st District, setting up a GOP primary fight in the rural district.

Gosar’s announcement Saturday means he will face Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu (BAB’-yoo) in the primary and could also face state Sen. Ron Gould of Lake Havasu City. Gould says he will soon announce his decision on whether to run.
