Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., predicted this morning that Gov. Nikki Haley would announce her choice to replace him today, and told the Charleston Post & Courier he hoped she would look to the state's congressional delegation.
But before anyone gets too excited -- Haley spokesperson Rob Godfrey then tweeted, "No U.S. Senate appointment news today."
The Post & Courier:
DeMint reportedly favors GOP Rep. Tim Scott to replace him when he resigns in January.
