Rep. Cleaver, Eugene Robinson Rip Idea Of Rep. Tim Scott Replacing DeMint
Eugene Robinson says he would rather have a candidate that is closer to him ideologically than an African American fill outgoing Senator Jim DeMint's seat.
Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC), an African American, is widely considered to be the top frontrunner for Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-SC) seat.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri) says Tim Scott would embrace Jim DeMint's policies.
"There are policy changes that have got to take place and Tim Scott is going to have essentially the same policies that Jim DeMint had. He's going to embrace those policies," Cleaver said.
