Despite what some may see as mudslinging in the Pitt County Sheriff's race, both Sheriff Mac Manning and challenger Neil Elks say they plan to put up a fair fight.
Sheriff Mac Manning said Thursday morning he'll run a clean campaign and challenged Elks to do the same.
Manning told us they've got enough important issues to talk about that he doesn't think negative comments need to be thrown around. Manning also says in past elections he's appreciated up-beat candidates that have talked about the future and claims that's what elections are all about.
Elks agreed to that challenge and says he too plans to fight fair. Elks told us Wednesday Manning accused him of mudslinging and he thinks that's the furthest thing from the truth.
