South Carolina's Democrats are gathering Thursday to decide whether to overturn the results of the primary election in which an unemployed, unknown military veteran won the nomination for U.S. Senate.
The state police should investigate how the unemployed winner of the state's Democratic U.S. Senate primary paid his filing fee of more than $10,000, after claiming indigency and being appointed a public defender to represent him in a court case, a state lawmaker says.
Mr. Greene said Monday he would wait to see who else filed before commenting on the race.
