Arizona GOP Sheriff Paul Babeu, who faced allegations of scandal earlier this year, announced in a statement to supporters Friday that he is dropping out of the 4th District congressional race.

“I have decided to end our congressional campaign and seek re-election as Pinal County sheriff. Yesterday, I informed my campaign staff and our finance team of my decision to run for re-election,” Babeu said in the statement, Politico reports.

He decided to halt his congressional bid because his chief deputy Steve Henry couldn’t run for sheriff — Babeu’s current position — while serving as his chief deputy. Henry couldn’t do so because in his present job he supervises staff who control federal funds. So Babeu opted to run for sheriff again to assure the continued success of that office, he said.
