Mr. Greene isn’t a tea partyer or even a Republican, but we can’t resist reporting an update. The unemployed Army veteran who somehow won the Democratic nomination for Senate in South Carolina (and was soundly defeated by Republican Sen. Jim DeMint in the general) is running again – this time for state representative.
Greene is competing in a special election to replace the late state Rep. Cathy Harvin. He faces two established Democrats in the Feb. 15 primary, and is considered the underdog. Greene paid his $165 filing fee on Dec. 24, according to the State newspaper. Greene lost his Senate race by more than 30 points.
