Santorum Congratulates Rep. Tim Scott on Senate Appointment

Verona, PA - Former Republican presidential candidate and chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement in response to South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley's decision to name Rep. Tim Scott to succeed Sen. Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate:

"Representative Scott has been a tireless pro-life, strong conservative leader in the House of Representatives and I'm encouraged to know he will continue to fight for those values in the U.S. Senate.  Senator DeMint will be missed, but the people of South Carolina and this country can take comfort in knowing Tim is in the Senate fighting for fiscal responsibility, smaller government, while not loosing sight of protecting the sanctity of life."

Finally! The 1st black CONSERVATIVE US Senator in the history of the county. Not that skin color matters, but another barrier thankfully broken.
