Alvin Greene from political oddity to footnote in one election cycle.
From National Post
Mr. Greene’s campaign, which amounted to an occasional series of awkward media encounters, still managed to bring in almost 30% of the vote on Tuesday — a long way from the 61% of Republican incumbent Jim DeMint, but hardly a pittance. Linda McMahon spent $50-million dollars to get 480,000 Senate votes in Conneticut; Mr. Greene spent about $50-million less than that, give or take a few hundred bucks, and received more than 300,000 votes in South Carolina. He won 10 counties. Maybe a lot of people like comics in those areas.
