Apparently he's an unemployed 32 year old who lives with his parents in Manning (not a great place). He spent no money, made no campaign appearances, and can't name one thing he'd do once elected but SC democrats (all 13 of them) gave him over 60% of the vote in the senate primary. Bizarre.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories being thrown around by Jim Clyburn that he's some sort of GOP plant. The only problem with that logic is that DeMint would get 60% of the vote no matter who they ran. Why would the GOP risk the legal ramifications and the PR nightmare of planting a candidate when DeMint is a lock for reelection anyway?

Yeah I don't think he's a GOP plant either.   But somebody had to help the guy out and it certainly wouldn't have been the state Dem. leadership.   Like you said he's unemployed and lives with his parents, yet somehow he paid the $10k+ filing fee?

If we keep this up, "Thank You, South Carolina" is going to be a nightly segment on The Daily Show.

Plus, what political operative in their right mind would put up an unemployed felon for the spot thinking they would actually win.  Logic says they'd put up someone just competent enough to win the primary but lose to DeMint.

I love this story. Shows how educated the democrat constituency is here in our lovely state. (cheap shot, I know...nothing but net)

But really, the guy is gaining national attention and it's really bizarre.  The debate with Demint is going to be awesome.  I'm going to tailgate for it.
I'll just regress, because I feel I've made myself perfectly redundant.

he was listed first alphabetically in the democratic primary.

i voted in the republican primary, but the idea that the first name to be listed got 60% of the votes in the democratic primary speaks volumes of the voters in that primary.

That's pretty much my thought on it as well.  Straight party line voters probably just voted for him because he was first on the list without really knowing much about him.
