>>> i talked at the top of the show tonight about how republican senator jim demint is leaving the senate to go run a conservative pressure group instead. south carolina 's governor has said that she will name congressman tim scott to take over jim demint 's seat in the senate since demint is leaving. that frees up tim scott 's seat in the house. do you want to know what's going to happen to tim scott 's seat in the house? nbc news can confirm that former south carolina governor mark sanford is planning to run for that house seat. it does not include part of the appalachian trail . as far as i know.
