Rock Hill Herald Endorses Tom Clements (SC-Green)
The Rock Hill Herald has endorsed Tom Clements for US Senate over Jim DeMint.
Clements is the Green Party candidate, but has drawn growing support from Democrats following the collapse of Democratic candidate Alvin Greene.
From the Herald:
In the race for U.S. Senate, we endorse Green Party candidate Tom Clements.
Third-party candidates are playing a central role in a number of high-profile races this year, and in South Carolina’s Senate race, we think Clements deserves the attention of voters.
His appeal is bolstered by issues with the two other candidates running this year. Alvin Greene, as much of the nation is aware, was the surprise winner of the Democratic senatorial primary. His campaign can be dismissed as sadly inadequate.
Incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint is the prohibitive favorite in this race. But while he is popular with many voters, his extreme views go too far for a large segment of South Carolinians.
