COLUMBIA, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -

South Carolina's newest lawmaker in Washington is opening up new offices in his home state.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott is officially opening up his offices Thursday in Columbia, North Charleston and Greenville.

In Greenville, Scott's office is located at 40 W. Broad St. and will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Fridays.

"Serving my fellow South Carolinians is my top priority, and my Upstate office stands ready to assist in any way they can," Scott said. "I am committed to providing South Carolinians with top-notch constituent service, and my staff and I look forward to assisting Upstate residents from this new location."

Scott previously represented South Carolina's 1st Congressional District. In January, Gov. Nikki Haley appointed him to fill the remainder of Jim DeMint's term. DeMint resigned to take the helm of the Heritage Foundation in Washington. Later this year, voters will choose someone to replace Scott in the U.S. House.
