Senator Tim Scott to Call for the Removal of the Confederate Battle Flag from the Statehouse Grounds

All three statewide-elected politicians in South Carolina have now called from the Confederate Battle Flag to be taken down. The Post and Courier reports:

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott today will join the chorus of public officials calling for the Confederate flag to come down today.

It is not known if he will attend Gov. Nikki Haley’s news conference in Columbia at 4 p.m. today at which, sources said, she will call for the Confederate flag to come down from the Statehouse grounds.

But sources close to Scott said he is calling for its removal.

That’s probably game, set, and match.
