Three challengers jumped into the race for Myrtle Beach mayor this week.

Robert Palmer, Bill Howard and Jerry Fouts filed paperwork to face incumbent John Rhodes in the Nov. 5 race.

Former Myrtle Beach Mayor Mark McBride also submitted paperwork but later withdrew his name.

Along with Rhodes, city council members Wayne Gray, Randal Wallace and Mike Lowder are also up for reelection. Only two challengers, Jackie Vereen and Keith Van Winkle, are seeking city council seats.

Filing closed today at noon.
