Will Rep. Tim Scott replace Jim DeMint?

Politico reports:

Rep. Tim Scott already brought a remarkable personal story to his first term in the House: a conservative black Republican, raised poor in the corner of South Carolina where the Civil War started.

But if the buzz in Washington and South Carolina is right, Scott might soon be the first African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction if Gov. Nikki Haley decides to appoint him to the seat vacated by Sen. Jim DeMint, who abruptly resigned Thursday to take a job running The Heritage Foundation. Facebook Fark Furl
