U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has been impressing us with his votes in Washington, D.C. over the last few months. So far, he’s upheld the principled brand of free market, pro-liberty conservatism advanced by his predecessor – Heritage Foundation president Jim DeMint.
Which is good … and a stark contrast to the big-spending, liberty-hating, war-mongering “neoconservatism” of South Carolina’s other United States Senator, Lindsey Graham.
Anyway … while Scott has attracted our attention with his solid record, he’s attracted the attention of The Hill – a D.C. insider rag – for another reason. According to the publication, Scott is the 35th “most beautiful” person on Capitol Hill.
Oh … and he also has a new girlfriend.
“She’s great,” Scott told The Hill‘s Emily Godwin. “We’ll see how it works out.”
Scott has previously been linked to Charleston, S.C. lingerie store owner Zee Patel, although that relationship reportedly ended prior to his appointment to the Senate. The 47-year-old bachelor is notoriously tight-lipped about his love life.
No. 1 on The Hill‘s “most beautiful” list? U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona). Frankly that selection – like the vast majority of this year’s winners – was a bit underwhelming.
