Challenges Await Potential Write-In Campaigns for Aiken Mayor | Politics as Sensational Clickbait

Teddy Milner, the sole candidate on the ballot for Aiken mayor, continues to garner attention as rumors of potential write-in campaigns circulate among the city’s residents.

Aiken County Council Vice Chairman Andrew Siders, current Mayor Rick Osbon, and former mayoral candidate Kathryn Wade have all been mentioned as possible write-in candidates, but each faces challenges that make their campaigns unlikely.

Siders ineligible for mayor

Aiken City Code specifies that members of council must reside within the city, making Siders ineligible for the mayoral position. Siders has confirmed that he does not live within the city limits and has no interest in running.

Osbon and Wade unable to participate in write-in campaign

Although Osbon and Wade are residents of the city, their previous loss in the Republican nomination race prevents them from actively participating in a write-in campaign. Online campaign records indicate that both Osbon and Wade have closed their campaign accounts, and no new candidates have filed financial reports.

No support from Republican Party

The Aiken County Republican Party has declared their support for Teddy Milner as the Republican nominee for mayor, making it clear that they will not back any write-in campaigns for Osbon, Wade, or Siders.
