S.C. Democrats rejected a protest of last week’s U.S. Senate primary vote tonight, meaning unknown Alvin Greene, who is facing a felony obscenity charge, is set to represent the party against Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint.
Greene’s opponent Vic Rawl, a Charleston former state lawmaker and judge and the party’s choice to challenge DeMint, told a committee of Democrats his upset loss to Greene is the fault of unreliable electronic voting machines that witnesses say malfunctioned.
The committee could have ordered a new vote, as Rawl requested, or awarded Rawl with the nomination.
Greene earned 60 percent of primary votes last week.
