Sgt. Cory Aukes vows to be a cops' cop
Ty and Kate Aukes were right alongside dad Cory last spring to start putting up the campaign signs.
They've attended parades, forums and open houses.
They even dunked Sheriff Frank Homer at a departmental open house last summer, then gave Aukes a high five afterward.
They're typical kids, 8 and 6, who still have time to be kids on the campaign trail. Ty showed up at a recent open house with a face full of poison ivy and a big grin.
