We are all happy to hear that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley plans to appoint Tim Scott to Jim DeMint’s Senate seat.  While it is tough to find someone who could fill such big shoes, Tim Scott is one of the best choices.

While all the news surrounding this pick will revolve around Tim Scott’s bio, and what he brings to the Senate, the most immediate concern for conservatives is that his seat is filled with a good conservative.  South Carolina is a state that we cannot get wrong.  This is a prime opportunity to insert another rock solid conservative into the House.

There will be a primary held within 10 weeks of Scott’s official resignation.  This will provide conservatives with a chance to circumvent a central committee.  At the Madison Project, we will work carefully to evaluate all of the possible choices and will be sure to weigh in if there is a significant difference between some of the candidates.
