The race for sheriff in Seneca County has been reduced from three candidates to two.
Supervisor Mike Rhinehart, who retired from the sheriff’s office in 2019, and now serves as an elected representative on the county’s board of supervisors, was one of the first to announce after Sheriff Tim Luce said he would not seek another term.
The Finger Lakes Times first reported Rhinehart’s exit from the race late-Wednesday.
Now, Lt. Tim Thompson and retired deputy and former Border City Fire Chief John Morabito are the remaining Republicans in the race.
Rhinehart told the FLT that he would seek another term on the county board. He currently sits as one of Seneca Falls’ two, at-large members of the Board.
