South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott continued his tribute to the victims of last week’s Charleston church shooting in a powerful speech that brought him to tears on the Senate floor Wednesday. In between votes on “fast-track” trade legislation, the freshman Republican read the names of each of the nine victims and introduced a resolution condemning the attack, which was adopted by unanimous consent. “We are Charleston, we are South Carolina and we are absolutely united,” Scott said. “And we are committed to replacing hate with love, pain with kindness and ill-will and hostility with good-will and comfort.”
