Republican operatives deny Clyburn allegation of running Greene campaign

A former campaign manager for Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) denied an assertion by a top Democrat that he and his firm ran an unknown Democrat’s successful primary bid for Senate in the state.

The former campaign manager for Wilson, Preston Grisham, who now runs his own political consulting firm, called an assertion by House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) that he or Wilson’s current staff had run Alvin Greene’s Senate campaign a “laughable” one.

“I had never even heard of Alvin Green until after the election last Tuesday,” Grisham said in an e-mail message. “Clyburn’s claims that myself or my firm had anything to do with that election are a figment of his imagination and quite laughable.”
