The winner will be a favorite heading into the general election in the Republican-dominated district. The Republican party nominee will face Democrat John Lewis and Constitution Party member Jerry Blanton in November.

In the Spartanburg County Council District 5 race, incumbent Dale Culbreth, 56, is challenged by former S.C. House member Joe Mahaffey, 70, in the Republican primary.

Culbreth, an owner of a few small businesses, has served four years on county council for District 5, which includes the northwest area of the county, from Duncan to Landrum.

Mahaffey, the founder of M&M Tax Service and Pic-A Flick Video, served three terms in the S.C. House prior to retiring in 2008.
