SC Dems to hold hearing on Greene tomorrow


The South Carolina Democratic Party announced its executive committee will hold a public hearing tomorrow afternoon on the Senate primary that propelled political unknown Alvin Greene into the national spotlight.

The losing primary candidate, Vic Rawl, a former judge and Charleston County council member, filed a protest. The committee can call for a taxpayer-funded do-over primary, overturn the result if there is sufficient evidence of error, or simply declare Greene the legitimate winner. Rawl and Greene are given the opportunity to present their case to the party.
