AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - Longtime Aiken County Sheriff Michael Hunt said Thursday he’s not running for re-election.

He made the announcement at an afternoon even where Marty Sawyer, an Aiken Department of Public Safety officer, announced his intent to run.

Hunt became the 18th sheriff of Aiken County in May 2003 during a special election.
