#SCSen: Representative Tim Scott (R-SC) to be Appointed to Replace departing Jim DeMint (R-SC)

The Washington Post reports that conservative Tim Scott will replace Jim DeMint in the US Senate:
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) will announce Monday that she will appoint Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to the Senate, according to two sources with knowledge of the pick.
As Wikipedia notes, Tim Scott's rise to Congress in 2010 was propelled by grassroots Tea Party support and a host of endorsements including one from Sarah Palin. Scott will be an excellent replacement for the conservative favorite Jim DeMint.

Congratulations to Nikki Haley and South Carolina for doing their part to Reboot Congress!
