Part 1: Candidates for York County sheriff join the Political Beat

YORK COUNTY, S.C. — In a little more than a week, voters in York County will pick their next sheriff.

It’s been a controversial race that started when the current sheriff, Republican Kevin Tolson, decided last minute to take his name off the ballot. His wife, Beth Tolson, announced on the last day of filing that she would run.

Republicans voted to re-open candidate filing and four other Republicans entered the ring: Michael Belk, Tony Breeden, Heath Clevenger, and Chris Blevins.
