Hobart Lewis wins Republican primary runoff for Greenville Co. sheriff


GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) – Hobart Lewis has won the Republican primary runoff for Greenville County Sheriff.

Lewis won in a landslide over A.T. “Tommy” Smith in the runoff Tuesday.

β€œI told them early on, I promised the people of Greenville that could trust me and I wouldn’t let them down and I needed their help and they showed up,” Republican candidate, Hobart Lewis said.

Lewis and Smith were the top two candidates from the Republican primary on January 7.

β€œThe race itself over the past couple of weeks has been difficult, a lot of things have happened that are disappointing. I’m sure for everybody involved. I’m glad to see that part come to an end,” Hobart said.

Lewis will now face Democrat Paul Guy in the special election on March 10.

Hobart Lewis – 27,217 (72.3%)
A.T. β€œTommy” Smith – 10,416 (27.7%)
