That's right, go Knox!

Does anyone think that Knox White has any real chance of losing this? I would like to think that most people are pleased with the job Knox White has done as mayor, and will not hesitate to re-elect him. Thoughts?

He shouldn't lose it. But with a lot of things a vocal minority can drown out a silent majority.

Knox White is probably the second best mayor in the state right now, behind Charleston's Joe Riley. He should win easily, and doesn't seem to be taking it for granted. His campaign has mailed and called often.

The only thing is, complancy and overconfidence on the part of the voters can result in upsets in a low turnout election, which this will undoubtedly be.

I just got back from voting. They said they've had a very steady stream of people all day. I think that my polling place is a major Knox stronghold, so that's good news. :thumbsup:

Why do you say that Joe Riley is better? I know he's done some good things for Charleston, but I would argue that Charleston is historically an easier sell than Greenville simply due to history, perceived charm, and name recognition.

And a large win at that! You can count on Greenville's growth and a bright future! :thumbsup:

It wasn't always like that. Charleston put in a LOT of work to become the city that many know and love today, and Joe Riley had a lot to do with that.

I was simply asking the original poster why he felt that Joe Riley was a better mayor than Knox White. I look forward to hearing why they think so, especially since I am not familiar with the specifics of what Riley has accomplished as mayor. I do know that he is well thought-of here, though.

As for my statement about Charleston being more well-known than Greenville, I stand by that. My whole life, I have always heard of Charleston. Most everyone has. It's famous (it's where the Civil War started, after all). It's always been known for its history and charm. It has been a tourist magnet for quite some time. That's not to say that it hasn't improved, because it obviously has. But when you're talking about name recognition on a national level, Greenville can't come close (yet).

I noticed a couple of cars in Greenville over the weekend that had bumper stickers reading "TABOR for MAYOR." Anybody know what that's about?
