Video of Gov. Nikki Haley’s announcement of Senator-elect Tim Scott

Governor Nikki Haley said in a press conference that “this is a new day” as she appointed Tim Scott as the next senator from South Carolina to fill Jim DeMint’s spot. Haley spoke of Scott’s help in the fight against unions and focused on his pro-business bona fides: “He understands the strength that we need to have in our business community as we continue to focus on jobs,” said Haley. She also stressed that Congressman Scott earned his seat.

Upon taking the podium Scott first asked the audience to join him in a moment of silence for those mourning in Connecticut and then gave thanks to Jesus Christ: “Our nation finds itself in a position where we need some backbone…we have a spending problem, ladies and gentlemen, and not a revenue problem.”

I’ve been following Tim Scott for a few years; seems like a good guy. I hope that he’ll be a good senator.

I am happy for Tim Scott and the people of South Carolina. Congratulations Senator Scott.

Aaaaannnnddd…the Collective has already started their hating on Sen. Designate Scott…

I really wish it wasn’t so easy to predict these people…

On the more positive side, this is a great pick, and I expect good things from this Senator.

Tim Scott is the complete opposite of Elizabeth Warren. That’s all you need to know.

This is awesome news. I was worried when the governor delayed her choice.

Another victory for the tea party. 😎

Time for a Monday Night Card Game?

I think there are a few apologies missing here. There were some brutal comments on Gov Haley last week.
