|Rep. Tim Scott is moving to the U.S. Senate to fill retiring Sen. Jim DeMint's spot|
More about the appointment: "Haley, who is Indian-American, added that it was important to her 'as a minority female that Congressman Scott earned this seat for the person that he is' and the results that he has achieved. Haley cited Scott's knowledge of the 'value of a dollar' and what America's working families face in today's economy as some of the things that played into her decision."
