Welcome, Senator Scott

When members of the U.S. Senate are sworn in on Jan. 3, 2013, all eyes will be on newly minted senator Tim Scott. While he and most Democrats have little to nothing in common, they consider him to be both honorable and likeable. Scott's appointment to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint is history making, but as you will learn here, it's not his first time making history. – Joyce Jones
