Candidate for Durham Sheriff Roy Taylor has gathered almost $2,000 more in campaign contributions during the third quarter as he faces incumbent Sheriff Worth Hill in the Nov. 2 race.

Taylor also loaned himself another $3,425 this quarter for expenditures, according to his most recent campaign finance report (PDF), filed today at the Durham Board of Elections.

Taylor has spent almost $12,000 in his campaign to unseat Hill, a four-term incumbent. Hill, meanwhile, has spent more than $15,000 this campaign, according to his most recent campaign report (PDF).

This is the first race in years in which Hill, a Durham native and veteran of the city police force, has faced a Republican challenger. Taylor has challenged Hill's leadership, but the race might come down to whether Taylor meets a requirement that a sheriff live in the county in which he's running for a year prior to the election.

Taylor is challenging whether the residency requirement, which is outlined in state law, is applicable. He states that legal advisors have found that he is eligible to serve as sheriff because he meets a 30-day residency requirement outlined in the N.C. state Constitution.
