Clarendon County Democratic Party Chairman Cal Land said Monday that Greene entered the race Friday, five minutes after filing opened for Harvin’s seat. The primary is Feb. 15 with a runoff, if needed, on March, 1. The special election is April 5.
Clarendon County Council member Dwight Stewart also has filed and Manning Mayor Kevin Johnson has also said he’s running, Land said.
Greene, 33, didn’t have much to say about his new political aspirations in a brief phone interview with The Associated Press.
“The filing closes next week and that’s when everybody finds out who has filed,” Greene said.
