He doesn't know who did it, but Alvin Greene likes it.
The 3-minute rap video called "Alvin Greene is on the Scene" is getting some buzz, and some views on YouTube.
The video features shots of the S.C. Democratic U.S. Senate nominee from early TV interviews to last week's speech in his hometown of Manning. Credits at the end say Greene produced and directed the video. Which is not exactly true.
"We didn't do that, but it is good and it is worth mentioning and passing along," Greene told me this afternoon.
Greene is a man of few words but big ambitions. "My campaign," Greene said, "is about ending the recession." How?
"Like I've been mentioning before, with real solutions and real issues that are important to Americans in their day-to-day life, jobs education and justice," he said. "I have real plans and my opponent has nothin'."
Ian Headley, a spokesman for Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, declined to comment on that.
But, he said, "We have no plans for a DeMint rap video."
