By FITSNews || With South Carolina receiving so much negative national press lately, it’s nice to see at least one of our politicians presenting a positive image of our state.

In case you missed it, check out this clip of S.C. Rep. Tim Scott – who finished first in last week’s crowded GOP primary for the S.C. first congressional district.  Scott will square off on June 22 in the GOP runoff against Paul Thurmond, son of former U.S. Sen. Strom Thurmond.

Earlier this week, Scott appeared on CBS to answer questions about Obamacare and the broader battle to restore free market principles to the American economy – subjects he is uniquely qualified to address given his leadership role on both issues in the S.C. General Assembly.

Along with Mick Mulvaney (who is running against John Spratt in the fifth district) and Jeff Duncan (who is running to replace Gresham Barrett in the third district), Scott is one of the few Republicans in South Carolina who has consistently “walked the walk” when it comes to standing up for market principles.

It’s good to see his star continuing to rise …
