This is the first time District 11 Councilman, Stu Rodman, is facing opposition in the primary race.
He jokingly admitted that he has not done much with this year's race, because he believes his record speaks for itself.
Rodman has served eight years with the Beaufort County Council and as Vice Chairman for the last two years.
He, along with Chairman Paul Sommerville and Jerry Stewart, who also face opponents in tonight's race, started on the council at the same time, together.
Prior to that, Rodman served two years with the school board and has a strong background in finance.
He says it is that kind of experience that he believes will help him win the race, especially among the voters of Hilton Head Island, which is part of his district.
"Well, I had three local elections without opposition; this is the fourth. It's a little bit different, but I kind of did what they used to call in the old days kind of 'a rocking chair campaign'; you just sit back and see what happens, just because the people frankly know what I have done and have not done," said Stu Rodman, Republican Primary Candidate, Beaufort County Council.
We will find out tonight what voters decide for Stu Rodman and the other candidates.
Stay tuned to WTOC for the latest results on tonight's primaries.
