BREAKING: Tim Scott Preparing To Run For President

Republican South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is preparing to run for president in 2024 according to the Wall Street Journal. Jennifer DeCasper, a Scott senior adviser, told the outlet he was “excited to share his vision of hope and opportunity and hear the American people’s response.” Scott will test a message of optimism and unity in early states as many Republicans are ready to move on from Donald Trump who so far is only candidate to officially declare. Scott has selected former Senator Cory Gardner and former head of the National Republican Senate Committee Rob Collins as co-chairs of a new super PAC.

According to the Post Millennial:

The Senator is set to speak on Thursday at a county GOP dinner in South Carolina celebrating Black History Month, following when fellow GOP South Carolinian Nikki Haley is expected to announce her bid. He is also set to speak later this month in Iowa, the first state in the Republican nominating process.

People close to Scott said that a challenge would be getting his name recognition up in a race that is expected to draw several big-name Republicans, including Trump and Haley.

Sen. John Barrasso, GOP Senate conference chair has said of Scott, “He truly believes that God is great and America is great and we are provided with incredible opportunities. So I think a Ronald Reagan ‘Morning in America’ hopeful America vision is one that Tim has, lives and breathes and is really needed in our country.”

Sources say Scott does acknowledge that it may be difficult to sway Republican voters who have embraced Trump no matter what.

I love Senator Scott, but President Trump has earned my vote.
