Nikki Haley Picks Tim Scott for the Senate by The Elephant's Child

A number of media sources are reporting that South a Governor Nikki Haley will name Representative Tim Scott to be the next senator from South Carolina. Scott will serve for two years, and then presumably run in a special election in 2014. If reelected, he would then serve an additional two years — the remaining two years of the six-year term Jim DeMint was elected to in 2010—then Scott would presumably run for a full six-year term in 2016. He will be the lone African-American Republican in Congress. He will be a great addition to the Senate.
