Former Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene is running for office again, this time an open S.C. House seat in Clarendon County.
Greene, an unemployed U.S. Army veteran who faces criminal obscenity charges, is one of three Democrats running to fill the District 64 vacancy created by the death of state Rep. Cathy Harvin.
Greene paid his $165 filing fee on Christmas Eve, said Clarendon Democratic Party chairman Cal Land.
Greene once again will be the underdog, facing two established Clarendon politicians.
Clarendon County Council chairman Dwight Stewart has filed to run in the primary, Land said. Manning Mayor Kevin Johnson also has said he will run.
