South Carolina Governor Nicky Haley has announced she's appointing Tim Scott, currently a Republican Representative for SC, to replace Jim DeMint, who recently resigned as senator.
 

Scott is a cultural and economic conservative, endorsed by the tea party. (Think Allen West?) This is a man who fought for, as wikipedia reports,
having the   Ten Commandments   posted outside the county council chambers, saying it would remind members of the absolute rules they should follow. The county council then unanimously approved the display and Scott nailed a   King James   version of the Commandments to the wall. Shortly after, the   ACLU   and   Americans United for Separation of Church and State   sued. After an initial court ruling said the display was unconstitutional, the council settled to avoid accruing more legal fees.   Regarding the costs of the suit, Scott said, "Whatever it costs in the pursuit of this goal (of displaying the Commandments) is worth it."

  is the   U.S. Representative   for   South Carolina's 1st congressional district . Elected in November 2010 to the   112th Congress , he is the first Republican   African-American   Representative from South Carolina since 1901.   Scott is also one of the two members of the 2010 freshman class chosen to sit at the House Republican leadership table.   Scott, a fiscal and cultural conservative, ran for Congress on a platform of reducing federal spending and taxes.   He was endorsed by   Tea Party   groups and other prominent Republicans.

Previously, Scott served one term in the South Carolina General Assembly (2009--2011), and 13 years on the Charleston County Council (1996--2008). ] A graduate of Charleston Southern University, Scott owns an insurance agency and has worked as a financial advisor.
