Alvin Greene, Enigmatic South Carolina Senate Candidate, To Make First Public Speech

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. — U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene is making his first public speaking appearance in South Carolina since his unexpected Democratic nomination a month ago.

Greene said Monday he was invited by a local branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to speak at the group's monthly meeting Sunday in his hometown of Manning in the central part of the state.

Greene won unexpectedly by defeating a former state lawmaker in the June 8 primary. Greene will face GOP U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint.

State police last week cleared Greene of wrongdoing related to his campaign finances. Some had questioned how the unemployed veteran paid a $10,440 candidate filing fee.
