Greene drops campaign adviser, hires another

Surprise U.S. Senate nominee Alvin Greene has dropped one adviser and hired another to help with his South Carolina campaign.

Donna Warren said Wednesday she no longer represents Greene in his long-shot bid to oust Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint.

Warren lives in Los Angeles and had been working for free for Greene's campaign for several weeks. She says Greene has hired Greenville attorney Suzanne Coe to manage his campaign.

There was no answer at Coe's office. In the 1990s, she represented Shannon Faulkner in her successful effort to gain entry to The Citadel, South Carolina's formerly all-male military college.

Greene shocked the party establishment when he defeated a former lawmaker in the Democratic primary last month.
