And that's not the only mistake: At the bottom of the image, the URL for Wilson's campaign Facebook page is also misspelled: "https://www.facebook.com/joewilsonforcongres."
Scott, currently a fellow congressman from South Carolina, was announced Monday as the successor to Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.)., who is stepping down early next year to run the Heritage Foundation. Scott will hold the seat until a special election is held in 2014. He'll become the Senate's only African American.
