Sheriff sets re-election campaign kickoff Sept. 14

Sheriff Charlie McDonald will kick off his 2018 re-election campaign next month with an event that featues food, music and a shotgun raffle.

The Committee to Re-Elect Sheriff Charles McDonald on Sunday sent out an email blast inviting supporters to the kickoff from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Boyd Automotive at 1875 Spartanburg Highway. "The event will feature food and refreshments, live music and an opportunity for the Sheriff’s supporters to meet with him personally," the invitation said. "A Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun will be raffled off with the drawing occurring at 8 p.m. This event is open to the public and all are invited to attend."

The committee also invited supporters to join McDonald as he walks the King Apple Parade on Labor Day. Supporters were urged to gather on the parade staging area at 12:30. An email later on will give more details, the committee said.

Sheriff since he was appointed to the vacant post in March 2012, McDonald won the Republican nomination for the seat in a May 2014 primary election over Erik Summey and Michael Brown and defeated Democrat Marty Katz in the general election.
