What would prompt a non-partisan, write-in candidate to join an already crowded U.S. Senate race?
Mauldin High School teacher Greg Snoad says he is campaigning to improve the political discussion in a race that has gotten polarized by personalities and out of touch with addressing South Carolina’s needs or problems.
Jim DeMint leads the race substantially in the polls now and that is not a problem for Snoad’s campaign. The effort, he says, is less about him and more about improving the dialogue.
He talked with SCRN on Labor Day when he announced his candidacy through social media and then waited to see how the message would spread. That tactic is the other key reason for his candidacy — to test the effectiveness of social media in promoting political discourse.
Snoad, a 25-year government teacher at Mauldin High School– joins Republican Jim DeMint, Democrat Alvin Greene, Green Party’s Tom Clements and another write in – Mazie Ferguson.
