Meeting in convention in Mt. Pleasant yesterday, the South Carolina Green Party chose James Island Public Service District Commissioner Eugene Platt as its nominee for the South Carolina First Congressional District seat. Platt will face off against the winners of the Republican and Democratic primaries in the general election. This was the first contest with more than one candidate seeking the SCGP nomination for any office, and Platt is the only candidate of any third party who will be running in this general election.
