Tim Scott will replace Sen. Jim DeMint, he will be the first black GOP Senator since Reconstruction

Tim Scott

Governor Nikki Haley has chosen Rep. Tim Scott as the replacement for Jim DeMint. While I do not agree with Scott’s political stance it is quite an accomplishment for a black man to sit in the hallowed halls of the Senate. This is a noteworthy accomplishment.

    I sincerely hope he stays there longer than the last black man to hold a Senate seat… 🙂

    EM, I suspect you agree with Scott more than you disagree. You both believe in faith, personal responsibility, being fiscally responsible, the list goes on. I will continue my mission to persuade the black community that we have more in common with the Republicans than we do the Democrats. I admit the Republican ‘brand’ is badly tarnished and torn and needs to be refurbished. Until we do it will be a frustrating experience to see one major party ignore us and another party take us for granted.
