DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

L.C. Knight won the Republican primary election for sheriff in Dorchester County. 

On Tuesday night, Knight beat Ray Nash and Robert Biddle. 

Unofficial results have Knight with 7,318 votes, Nash with 5,910 and Biddle with 810. 

There are no Democrats running for the post.

"I enjoy coming in every day. Law enforcement's been in my life for the last 40 plus years," Knight had said earlier. "I think I have something left to offer. I don't think I'm done yet and I feel my county is calling me back into action."

Knight says there is more work left to do, including opening the new jail and building a training facility for his deputies.
