DeMint Wants Scott to Replace Him

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has "made it known" in South Carolina that he wants Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) to replace him in the Senate when he resigns early next year, The Hill reports.

The final decision will be up to Gov. Nikki Haley (R) who will appoint someone to serve until a special election in 2014.
