Alvin Greene Makes First Speech at S.C. NAACP Meeting

A candidate whose campaign has been fraught with surprises, South Carolina’s Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene‘s first speech Sunday reportedly went rather smoothly.

The 32-year-old candidate spoke about education, creating jobs and changes to the legal system in a nearly 7-minute speech in front of more than 300 people at an NAACP meeting in Manning.

An unemployed military veteran, Greene said, “My campaign is about getting South Carolina and American back to work, and moving South Carolina and America forward. South Carolina and American cannot afford six more years of my opponent.”

He also promised to address education in the area and infrastructure improvements.

Greene did not answer questions from broadcast and print media who had reportedly come from as far away London to hear him speak.

Greene’s stunning victory over Democratic party favorite Vic Rawl put him in the November challenge against Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint.

Post-election research into Greene’s background revealed that he had a pending obscenity charge and had never been embraced by the Democratic party.
