    From Fox News:

    Greene’s improbable victory over Democratic candidate Vic Rawl, a former state legislator who officials expected would win, has unleashed a flood of questions, including how the unemployed Army veteran managed to pay $10,400 to get on the ballot before running a “low budget” campaign with no ads, website or fundraising.

    Voters also are wondering how the 32-year-old Greene, facing a felony charge for allegedly showing pornographic images to a college student last October, managed to capture 59 percent of the primary vote.

    In an interview Thursday with FoxNews.com, Greene said he won by “simple, old-fashioned campaigning” that included traveling the state and speaking to voters “wherever I could find them.”
