      Alvin Greene may have some support

      The mystery man Alvin Greene shocked his own party Tuesday winning the Democratic primary.

      COLUMBIA (WACH) -- The mystery man Alvin Greene shocked his own party Tuesday winning the Democratic primary.

      Hours after winning, many in Greene's own party pressured him to step aside, but one man is tired of the Greene bashing.

      "He paid his filing fees, they took his money, they didn't think he had a chance but he won. So now instead of working with this guy, they say, 'you have a potential charge against you and we want you to step aside," says Barry Walker.

      Irmo Councilman and Midlands business owner Barry Walker was shocked when he heard that Greene came out on top. But Friday afternoon the councilman was unhappy with the Democratic Party TMs lack of support for the self proclaimed people's choice.

      "The bottom line is, he was elected by the primary process fair and square," Walker adds.

      But for Walker and the rest of South Carolina, Greene remains a mystery.

      "I don't know anything about him. I don TMt know anything more than you do. All I know is this guy ran for elected office and he convinced 100,000 people to push the button for him," Walker explains.

      But one thing Walker knows, he's not ready for Greene to be his senator.

      "Is Alvin Green qualified to represent Barry Walker in my interest in Washington? I don't think so, but he TMs qualified to run because he won the election."

      Walker says he spoke with Greene before the primary, but has not spoken to him since.
