Rising GOP Star Scott Forming Leadership PAC

Freshman Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is taking the next step toward increasing his profile: creating a leadership PAC, our colleague Ben Terris reports.

Terris has more:

Scott told National Journal on Wednesday that he is launching his leadership PAC-- Tomorrow is Meaningful (TIM)PAC-- with a goal of expanding the scope of the Republican Party.
"Part of this will be emphasizing the fact that we have a diverse group of people," said Scott, one of two African-American Republicans in the House. "But we don't want to go looking for diversity. We are looking for people who stand for certain issues, and we are confident that people of a diverse background will show up."

A component of the PAC's mission will be to find candidates--for all types of federal office-- around the country and help bolster their tea party credibility. The PAC also aims to help these candidates emphasize that they came to their conservative values through their life experiences.
