Aiken County Democrats Warm Up to Green Party in Senate Race


1 comment

So what are South Carolina Democrats supposed to do now that that the utterly unelectable Sphinx from Manning, Alvin Greene, has won the party's U.S. Senate nomination? A lot of us are looking at the Green Party's Tom Clements. He doesn't have a snowball's chance in July, but Clements does seem to be a worthy candidate for Dems to turn to. That's what the Aiken County Democratic Party seems to be doing on their website. Check out this story from the Aiken Standard:

After the primary, South Carolina Democrats selected one candidate to challenge the incumbent senator, Jim DeMint, R-S.C.; but, in Aiken County, the local Democratic party seems to offer two choices - Greene or Green.

The Aiken County Democratic Party is giving "options" as to whom the party thinks should be elected to the U.S. Senate by listing primary winner Alvin M. Greene of Manning as a candidate and also listing a link to the campaign page of Green Party candidate Tom Clements on the group's website,

"It's not an endorsement - but we want people to know there are choices," said Aiken Democratic Party Vice Chair Teresa Harper.

On the page, where other Democratic candidates' websites are linked, Greene's is not. The header incorrectly spells his name and, unlike other candidates, there is no picture....
