Incumbent Bob Gualtieri and challenger James McLynas have both qualified in the race for Pinellas County Sheriff.

Still not qualified is Josh Black, who has announced he will run. Black has until noon Friday to qualify.

Gualtieri, a Republican, is running for his second four-year term as Pinellas sheriff.

McLynas, who has no party affiliation, has accused Gualtieri of running a corrupt department. Thus far, his campaign does not appear to be gathering much support, at least financially. At the end of last month, McLynas had not raised any money.

Gualtieri, on the other hand, reported a total of $119,005.
