Tim Scott heading back to US Senate as bigger ambitions loom
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Tim Scott has won reelection to what he said will be his last term serving South Carolina. But the only Black Republican in the Senate may have bigger political ambitions yet.
Scott beat Democratic state Rep. Krystle Matthews for a second full term.
He was appointed to the U.S. Senate in 2013 by then Gov.
Nikki Haley when Jim DeMint resigned and also won a special election.
