Anti-police 'satanist' runs for sheriff as Republican in NH Republicans in one New Hampshire county have nominated a unconventional candidate for sheriff: a self-described satanist whose campaign slogan disparages the police.
With more than 4,200 votes, Republicans in one New Hampshire county nominated an unconventional candidate for sheriff: a self-described satanist whose campaign slogan disparages the police.
DiMezzo — the lone Republican candidate for Cheshire County sheriff in September's primary — believes most voters blindly checked the box next to her name.
She's looking to unseat Eli Rivera, a Democrat who has held the job in the county of more than 76,000 since 2012.
Currently, the sheriff oversees a department of 15 communication specialists, 13 court officers, 12 deputies and two administration staff.
But Earl Nelson says some Republicans have told him they support his write-in campaign for sheriff.
I’m going to say she has a chance,” said DiMezzo's campaign adviser, Ian Freeman, who hosts a radio show and runs a local Libertarian blog, Free Keene. »
