FIRST ON FOX – Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina is heading next month to the state that has kicked off the presidential nominating calendar for half a century.
Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, will address Polk County Republican Party’s Lincoln Dinner on Feb. 22 in West Des Moines, Iowa.
This stop and others have fueled speculation about his possible White House ambitions in 2024.
The report notes that that Scott “easily cruised to re-election” in November, but he has said this will be his last six-year term in the U.S. Senate.
Scott was interviewed last week by Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, who asked Scott how close he was to making a decision about whether he will run for the Oval Office in 2024? Scott did not directly answer the question, but his response confirmed that he is strongly considering it.
On Monday, Scott responded to an editorial in the Washington Examiner, titled, “The state of our union under Biden: A weaker, less secure, more divided America.”
“We must get our country on back on track and that starts with securing our borders, jumpstarting our economy and prioritizing the needs of Americans,” Scott wrote in a Twitter post.
