The following was published on the Charleston City Paper website on May 1st:
The special election for South Carolina’s District 1 Congressional seat is next week, and Green Party candidate Eugene Platt has raised less than $5,000 for his campaign. To put it another way, Platt has raised less than 0.7 percent of the combined totals of his opponents, Republican Mark Sanford and Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch.
“I have received some contributions but have no inclination to emulate the corporate party campaigns with their highly polished fundraising and their obscene levels of spending,” Platt says by way of explanation. A 74-year-old Episcopalian James Islander with a passion for social justice, Platt is not known for his gladhanding or sugarcoating skills. He opposes the war in Afghanistsan and called the war in Iraq “a recruiting campaign for terrorists.” He thinks Obamacare doesn’t go far enough and favors Canadian-style universal healthcare. And, as you might have guessed, he thinks the courts should overturn the Citizens United ruling, which lifted limits on political contributions by corporations.
He knows why the Democrats resent him. “After the May 7 election, if Sanford wins and the margin by which he wins is less than the number of votes I received, I’m going to receive some hate mail,” Platt says. But in Platt’s eyes, the First District progressive votes aren’t Colbert Busch’s to be stolen. “We feel that in this country, no one owns the vote of anyone else.”
Let’s state the obvious: Platt is a long shot. In poll results released by Public Policy Polling last week, he took just 3 percent of the vote, compared to 50 percent for Colbert Busch and 41 percent for Sanford. “My strategy is to let them tear each other apart, as they’ve begun to do,” Platt says.
