Mike & Winey discuss the results of Election Night 2012.

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP)- Paul Babeu (bab-YOO) has won a second term as Pinal County Sheriff.

Babeu defeated Democrat Kevin Taylor and independent Ty Morgan in Tuesday's general election.

He easily beat three Republicans in the August primary. That came months after Babeu was forced to acknowledge he is gay after stories emerged of a falling out with a former lover and shirtless photos of him on a gay dating website emerged.

The 43-year-old Babeu pulled out of the race for a congressional seat after the news broke.

Taylor runs a security company, but was a part-time sheriff's deputy in Ohio from 1983 to 1986. He moved to Arizona in 1999.

Morgan has worked for the county sheriff's department for the past 17 years.
