COURTESY OF EACH CAMPAIGN

In November, Hamilton County voters pick a new sheriff. Democratic candidate Charmaine McGuffey defeated current sheriff Jim Neil in the primary. She now faces Republican Bruce Hoffbauer.

McGuffey served in the sheriff's office for 33 years, rising to the rank of major and serving as the commander of Jail and Court Services for Hamilton County. She is the highest-ranking woman in the history of the office. She left the department in 2017.

Hoffbauer has served in the Cincinnati Police Department for 34 years, and recently retired as a lieutenant and relief commander of District 3 in Western Hills.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss their campaigns are Democratic candidate Charmaine McGuffey and Republican candidate Bruce Hoffbauer.

And joining us to examine the race is WVXU's Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson.
