From USA Today, about the conservative U.S. Congressman from South Carolina: "Republican Rep. Tim Scott should face little or no GOP opposition when he runs to keep his Senate seat in 2014 after his appointment as Sen. Jim DeMint's replacement expires, political insiders say. They note that Scott, who will be the state's first black senator when he replaces DeMint in January, has received a flurry of endorsements since his appointment and will have a pro-business, socially conservative record to run on in 2014. South Carolina Republicans appear eager to clear the decks for Scott when he goes before voters statewide 18 months after taking office."
More: "'He'll be fine in 2014,' said Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee. 'If he stays true to servant leadership and if he addresses the nation's concerns and the concerns of the people of South Carolina, and does so in a way that he is being effective in that cause, than they will give him the full mandate to serve.'"
Meanwhile, Senator-Designate Scott has started on his 2014 campaign fundraising.
