Yes, Jim DeMint still started the recession.

(Politico)– Former Senate candidate Alvin Greene lost his bid for a seat in the South Carolina legislature on Tuesday, winning just 1 percent of the vote in a Democratic primary.

According to unofficial election results, Greene got fewer than 40 votes on Tuesday, finishing fourth among four candidates pursuing the party’s nomination to run in a general election for a state House seat representing Clarendon County and a small piece of Williamsburg County that belonged to a woman who died last year.

In November, Greene lost his challenge of incumbent Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, garnering 28 percent of the vote. He got on the general election ballot after getting an improbable 59 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary for the seat.

This time around, Greene did much of what he did when running for Senate. That is, he did little to promote his candidacy and was uncommunicative with reporters. On Tuesday, he threatened to call the sheriff as he chased a TV crew off his lawn, and said he had “no comment” and hung up the phone when The Associated Press called him after the vote totals were in.
