Little-Known SC Senate Hopeful Slow to Raise Cash

Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 01:05 PM

 

Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene still hasn't raised much money in his bid to unseat Republican Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina.

Five weeks after stunning the party with his primary win, the unemployed veteran and political novice said he has raised about $1,000. DeMint, the incumbent, had more than $3.5 million on hand after his last filing.

Greene, who recently set up a donations page on his website, said he remained optimistic. He said it's the issues that count, not money.

Candidates don't have to file financial reports detailing their expenses and contributions until they hit a $5,000 threshold, so Greene has not yet filed any paperwork.
