If he’s named as this says, he’d better be very strongly principled and very careful of his safety in order to survive and thrive as a conservative black in the U.S. Senate.

He’d better be a super communicator unlike the hapless ones we have there now, with few exceptions.

From what I’ve seen and heard of Tim Scott, I like him. He’s not the most articulate person, I’ve ever heard, but he’s been consistently conservative in his views and he is a member of the House TeaParty Caucus. Anyone know what his voting record?

Scott has a 96.00 rating from the ACU.

Acceptable.

Why would Dowdy have been better? I’m thinking Dowdy might have a better chance at picking off Graham in 2014.
