Tim_Scott_251South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to appoint Congressman Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate is being welcomed by one of the Senate’s rising stars and potential 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is considered one of outgoing Senator Jim DeMint’s protege, and many within the Republican grassroots believe that Rubio, DeMint and Scott are all cut from the same conservative cloth.





rubio“I applaud Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to send Tim Scott to represent the people of South Carolina in the United States Senate. I’ve gotten to know Congressman Scott since his election to the House of Representatives two years ago and know him to be a passionate, thoughtful and sincere advocate for the people of South Carolina and for limited government principles. He is a worthy successor to my good friend Senator Jim DeMint, who remains a role model for those of us drawn to public service and the desire to keep America an exceptional nation. I look forward to working with soon-to-be Senator Scott in the months and years ahead to advance the principles of a limited and effective government.”-U.S. Senator Marco Rubio
