U.S. Sen. Tim Scott was the first candidate in the 2014 election to receive an endorsement from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee, according to a story posted today on a website aimed at social conservatives.

Scott, a Republican and South Carolina's junior senator, was one of only three members of Congress to achieve a perfect score of 100 percent in CCAGW's 2013 Congressional Ratings, according to the story on the Government is Not God Political Action Committee site.

Scott faces Democrat and Richland County Councilwoman Joyce Dickerson on the November ballot. He was originally picked to fill the Senate seat in 2012 by Haley, while he was still in the U.S. House of Representatives, after previous seat-holder Jim DeMint quit to run the conservative Heritage Foundation.
