Senate Armed Services adds second South Carolinian @SenatorTimScott via @reporterjoe

WASHINGTON — South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott has joined the Senate Armed Services Committee. Scott is the second South Carolinian on the powerful panel, alongside Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham. Nebraska is the other state with two seats on the committee. Scott, whose national security positions are not well known, told reporters Wednesday that “listening is my first approach.” “I have two brothers who’ve served,” he said. “I think force readiness and looking at the size and scope of our reach will be important to me. [Military construction] will be important as well.” Scott said one of his brothers is an Air Force Academy graduate and another is a retired Army sergeant major. Looking forward to joining the Senate Armed Services Committee (@SASCMajority ) and working on behalf of the brave men and women that put on the uniform for our nation every day! https://t.c...
