Tim Scott & Allen West Elected to Congress

Amongst the most noteworthy GOP congressional victories this evening were those of Tim Scott in South Carolina's 1st Congressional District and Allen West in Florida's 22nd Congressional District.

They become the first Republicans who happen to be African-American elected to Congress since J.C. Watts won his final term a decade ago. Scott won an open seat while West, who served as a Lieutenant-Colonel in the U.S. Army, defeated two term Democratic Congressman Ron Klein. Both men had the support of the Tea Party as you can see here and here.
