Fox News is reporting that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will name Rep. Tim Scott to replace Sen. Jim DeMint, who announced recently he would resign as of Jan. 1 to head the Heritage Foundation, a conservatiev think tank. Haley is expected to make the announcement at noon on Monday.
“There is no question that I’m looking for a conservative person to fill those shoes, but we are never going to find someone as conservative and staunch as Jim DeMint,” Haley told reporters. “What I do think we’ll find is someone who very much understands the state of South Carolina.”
Scott was elected during the “Republican wave” of 2010 and is said to be a “conservative fighter”. He will be South Carolina’s first black Senator.
