Who got the best post-convention bounce? Patch readers weighed in.
Our area's representation on the Greenville County Council isn't going to change, as the following incumbents are running without any opposition in the general election:
Liz Seman, District 24
Butch Kirven, District 27
Meanwhile, Lottie Gibson, who represents District 25, faces a petition candidate in Ralph Sweeney.
In the Greenville County Sheriff's race, Steve Loftis, the longtime Republican incumbent, faces no opposition on the ballot, though former GCSO employee Dexter Reaves is running against him as a write-in candidate.
At the South Carolina Senate level, Tommie Reece defied the odds by successfully mounting a petition drive to get her name on the ballot against entrenched incumbent Mike Fair for his District 6 seat. Fair got more than he bargained for in a close primary contest with Chris Sullivan. Reece, who sits on the Greenville County School Board, was once on the ballot in the GOP primary race for the Senate 6 seat currently held by incumbent Mike Fair, but was decertified and kicked off the ballot just three days before the June 12 primary because she hadn't filed her statement of economic interest form at the exact same time she declared her candidacy.
At the Greenville County School Board level, Joy Grayson has led the most active campaign for the District 17, being the only one to show at multiple forums in which all three candidates vying for Tommie Reece's soon-to-be-vacated seat were invited. Grayson is running against a self-described Tea Party candidate in Paul Fallavollita and Sunny Weigand, who works in the homeschool curriculum field.
Other races for local seats that do not have any challengers are:
- Greenville County Coroner, held by B Park Evans Jr.
- Greenville County Clerk of Court, held by Paul Wickensimer
- Greenville County Register of Deeds, held by Tim Nanney
