(Newser) – Everyone’s favorite mumbling unemployed Senate candidate is jumping back in the political arena, this time running for the more attainable post of South Carolina state representative. Alvin Greene has signed up to run in the special election for state Rep. Cathy Harvin’s seat, paying his $165 entry fee just minutes after registration opened on Christmas Eve, the Hill reports. The primary will be held Feb. 15, leading to an April 5 general. Greene was last seen losing his race against Jim DeMint by more than 30 points.
