As some of you may know, I now reside in Charleston, SC. Well, the other day when I was watching TV, I happened to see an ad for Tim Scott. Mr. Scott is apparently running in the Republican primary on June 8th to represent the 1st district of SC (the Charleston area) in the US House of Representatives. (See the ad below.)

Well, if you want to know a bit about Tim Scott, here it is. Tim Scott has been in the SC House of Representatives for the last two years–and he is the first black Republican elected to the state assembly since Reconstruction. Before serving in the SC House of Representatives, Tim Scott served on the Charleston County Council for thirteen years. Not to mention, he is just one of eleven candidates to be endorsed by the Club for Growth.

Now, all of this is fine and good; however, to me, Mr. Scott’s resume is not the best part of his candidacy. What is so awesome about Tim Scott is that the man has an inspirational life story, he is a great public speaker, and he has a magnetic personality. I mean, the dude oozes charisma out of every pore. Unlike Barack Obama, he doesn’t speak in bumper stickers (“Hope”….”Change”….). No, instead, Mr. Scott speaks from the heart about his real life experiences and draws people in. And, unlike Obama, Tim Scott radiates sincerity instead of coming across as too cool for school. And finally, unlike Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, Tim Scott actually seems to like people (imagine that!)–instead of just using them for his own personal gain.

I have embedded a video below of Tim Scott’s speech to RNC members at Myrtle Beach, SC. If you don’t have the time to watch the entire speech, then at least watch the first twelve minutes of it–that should be enough to give you an idea of who Mr. Scott really is and what he is about. I highly suggest that we at The Minority Report and Redstate start throwing our support behind Tim Scott.
