Sheriff Tony Helms

Sheriff Tony Helms will keep his post in Camden County, and he thinks the big margin of victory over his opponents might have had something to with his appearances on national TV.

Sheriff Helms went toe-to-toe with CNN host Don Lemon after video of a pool party in the Lake Area went viral after the Memorial Day weekend.

Helms tells KRMS News he also gives credit to the people who helped with his campaign.

Helms took in more than 56-percent of the votes for Camden County Sheriff, beating out Chris Edgar by 23-hundred votes.
