Guess How Many People Showed Up For Alvin Greene’s Election Party

November 3, 2010

The newscaster from South Carolina’s WLTX-TV summed up U.S. Senate candidate Alvin Greene’s (D) campaign succinctly: “Alvin Greene did shock and sometimes embarrass Democrats by winning his party’s nomination.”

That shock and embarrassment climaxed a few weeks ago when during an appearance on MSNBC he refused to say much more than “Jim DeMint caused the recession,” which bewildered host Lawrence O’Donnell.

So it probably comes as no surprise that barely anyone showed up for his election night party on Tuesday — save for about a dozen family members and close friends — and that Greene refused to concede the race even though the Associated Press called it as soon as the polls closed.

Instead, he went after winner Jim DeMint in his signature aloof manner:

Still, Greene was able to garner about 330,000 votes. And the night wasn’t a complete failure. According to WLTX, he used the event to unveil a new Alvin Greene comic book:

Greene premiered his comic book, titled “Alvin Greene: The Ultimate Warrior,” and said a similarly-named documentary based on his life is currently in the works.
