Nikki Haley gets the GOP nod for Governor, and Tim Scott is the nominee for Congress in the 1st Congressional District.
Now, do you notice anything about these candidates, who were backed by the Tea Part and overwhelmingly supported by the GOP primary voters? Haley is an Indian-American, while Scott is an African-American. Each defeated multiple white candidates in the initial primary, and trounced a white opponent in the runoff. These are the faces of the future in the GOP, as minority candidates recognize that the GOP shares their values and welcomes them -- and will vote for those with solid credentials for office, not simply a gift for reading from a teleprompter.
