It was a tougher competition than during most election cycles, but one would be hard-pressed to take away the title of Most Bizarre Midterm Election Candidate from South Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene. Incumbent Senator Jim DeMint may have won reelection handily, but Greene still had a good time last night, picking at finger food and showing off his new comic book.
WBTV (a CBS affiliate) ventured deep into Greene HQ last night, where the candidate was wandering a nearly-empty ballroom snacking away at various hor d’oeuvres and taking victory laps. Approached by reporters, he seemed much more interested in the delicious sandwich he was munching on than his campaign, answering “no, no, no, no” to most questions, except for one: what he would say to DeMint should he have a chance to speak to him. “Why did you start the recession?” Greene answered earnestly.
Greene also debuted his new “Warrior” comic book, for which he was very grateful and excited. He also left the door open on any future political adventures.
