Results from Greenville Mayoral Republican Primary
GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - On Tuesday, voters hit the polls in Greenville to vote in the Republican primary for mayor.
Polls closed at 7:00 p.m. Here are the latest results from the race.
Current Mayor Knox White took home the primary victory Tuesday night as he celebrated with campaign staff, friends and family. White has held the title of mayor for nearly 30 years and is running for reelection this year.
White’s challenger in the primary was Greenville native Joe Farmer. Farmer is a retired athletic trainer and an instructor at Furman University.
Farmer reacted to the results Tuesday night saying, “We knew it was going to be an uphill battle, and you know it was, but we learned a lot during the way, and you know, just wished the mayor well and good luck in the November election.”
White’s campaign will now turn his attention to the general election this fall, where he will face Democratic candidate Michelle Shain on Nov. 7.
