Tim Scott Appointed to Senate to fill DeMints Place

No doubt the left will rise up in a rage.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-34222_16...tor/?tag=socsh

South Carolina Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., has been appointed by Republican Gov. Nikki Haley to the Senate seat now held by Republican Jim DeMint. DeMint is leaving the Senate at the end of the year to run the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation.

“He is the right person,” she said. She pointed to his strong relationship with the business community and the “courage” he showed during a fight with the unions and the National Labor Relations Board during a recent effort to move Boeing factories to the state.

Scott will be the first African-American Republican in the Senate since former Sen. Edward Brooke, R-Mass., lost his bid for reelection in 1978. The 47-year-old, who won a second House term last month, was the first black Republican to represent South Carolina in the House in more than a century.

With DeMint and Scott standing at her side, Haley called the appointment “historic.”

“As a minority female, it is important to note that Congressman Scott earned this seat,” Haley said.

J. David Woodard, political science professor at Clemson University, said Scott can be “a real vehicle for conservatives to reach into the African American community” following an election in which Republicans fared badly among minority groups.

Like DeMint, Scott is a tea party-backed conservative who sought repeal of the national health care law. A vocal critic of President Obama, he has said it would be “an impeachable offense” if Mr. Obama raised the debt ceiling without congressional approval.

He's no Carol Moseley Braun. And for that we can all be thankful.

I don't see the problem here. The left should be cheering that a black man in SC got appointed to a Senate seat by a female governor. Guess the left has a problem with minorities gaining political power when they cannot control them.

What a disingenuous bunch of horseshit. The left doesn't like this guy because he's a RWNJ, not because he's black.

GFY.

Good solid conservative, can't really complain about this one. Noone is going to as good as Jim Demint, but at least she didn't appoint a neocon.
