SC: Green candidate for US Senate opens state headquarters, will focus on education, vows to protect Social Security

From Midlands Connect:

Green Party candidate Tom Clements talked briefly on Thursday and answered questions as he opened his new office on Sumter Street next to the Roly Poly sandwich shop. “As a South Carolinian from Georgia, it’s always painful to see that we’re always close to the bottom,” Clements explains. “I’m going to put education at the top of my agenda and healthcare, cutting the debt and protecting social security.”

    An excerpt from The State (Columbia, SC’s newspaper):

    “Clements is getting some support from Democrats who are leery of voting for their party’s candidate Alvin Greene, especially after he was indicted earlier this month on two charges, including a felony count of showing pornography. ”

    “Leery” of voting for Mr. Greene? How is this a question? Have they ever heard him talk or seen his ‘ideas’?

    I would just like to say that anyone who votes for Alvin Greene out of partisan allegiance is FUCKING RETARDED. The vote total for Mr. Greene is more or less going to tell me how much faith I should have in the ability of America, and possibly mankind, to right itself.

    The campaign HQ is at 1247 Sumter Street, Columbia SC, right around the corner from the State House.

    The Clements campaign has already raised more cash than Greene. Tom will make a good run.

    Milton, Mr. Clemments probably doesn’t read this. Go to his website and invite him directly.

    Erik, maybe people are inspired by Alvin Greene’s unorthodox style of speaking and think that a politician who doesn’t sound like a politician may be good for us? It may even be true.
