Tampa, FL (AP) - Count Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina as a believer in corporal punishment.
Scott gave his mother much of the credit for his success in life. He said he grew up in a poor, single-parent home, but she used "tough love" with the end of switch to make sure he was on the right path.
"And my momma loved me a lot," Scott said.
Scott was one of the more entertaining speakers Tuesday afternoon. He completed his speech with a song dedicated to President Barack Obama.
"Hit the road, Jack. And don't you come back no more, no more no more," he sang.
