Covering Clarendon and Williamsburg counties, the District 64 seat only recently became vacant after its incumbent passed away on December 4. Rep. Cathy Harvin, a Democrat, died of breast cancer complications just one month after being re-elected for a third term. She was unopposed in the race.
A special election to fill Harvin’s seat is scheduled for April 15, following a February 15 primary if necessary. Interested candidates have until January 3 to file for the race.
Greene declined comment, according to WIS-TV in Columbia, until other candidates entered the race.
Greene took a mysterious Democratic primary win, and even though he was relatively unknown to active Democratic voters before the June election. He became not just well-known but infamous on the very next day, however, when news of his arrest for lewd behavior was released.
Despite requests directly from the state Democratic Party that he step down, Greene remained in the race for U.S. Senate against incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint (R).
Greene received 27.65 percent of the vote in November’s General Election.
