GOP officials are confirming that Gov. Haley (R-S.C.) will announce Sen. DeMint’s temporary replacement today.

As Twitchy reported, Sen. DeMint is giving up his Senate seat to head The Heritage Foundation.

Who will it be? Will Tim Scott, a favorite pick of many, trend again before noon? We suspect she won’t heed Howard “Yeearggh” Dean’s call for comedian Stephen Colbert.

Twitchy will update with the full announcement when made by Gov. Haley.

Update: Reportedly, it is Rep. Tim Scott, now Senator Scott!

Twitchy will continue to monitor and will update when the official announcement is made.

Fox News is confirming.

And reaction rolls in.

Update: The announcement has officially been made.

Congratulations to the new senator! Shamefully, yet predictably, the racist Left has already started spewing vicious hate and racial epithets.
