The South Carolina Democratic Party has upheld Alvin Greene’s surprise victory in the state’s Senate primary, overruling a protest by fellow Democrat Vic Rawl that would have resulted in a new vote. The party’s executive committee ruled that there was not enough evidence of impropriety in the unlikely candidate’s win. Greene will now face off against Republican senator Jim DeMint, presumably with the campaign slogan: "Feel Free to Confuse Me With Al Green!" [AP]
