WALTERBORO — Former Colleton County sheriff's Capt. Buddy Hill will face off against his former boss in November's general election for sheriff.

Hill on Tuesday won a Republican primary runoff against Jason Chapman by a 61 to 39 percent margin, according to official results.

He will face incumbent Sheriff George Malone, who is running as a Democrat in November.

Hill left the Sheriff's Office earlier this year to prepare for the election.

Chapman is a sergeant with the Walterboro Police Department. He finished second to Hill in a primary two weeks ago.

Former Colleton County Chief Deputy Steve Bazzle finished third in that race and Ehrhardt Assistant Police Chief Tommy Hudson finished last.
