Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (left) meets Roger and Nan Gorham of the Cowboy Church of Mohave County on Saturday during the 67th Annual Mohave County Republican Central Committee Picnic held in Hualapai Mountain Park. Many officials and candidates were on hand to speak to the crowd, and Arpaio, GOP Chairman Tom Morrissey and Secretary of State Ken Bennett were among the scheduled guest speakers. The picnic also featured food, a raffle, activities for kids and other fun and was meant as a thank you to local Republicans for all the work they do. In addition, as Speaker of the House Andy Tobin pointed out, it was also the "kickoff for the 2012 elections."
