South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has announced his run for president for 2024 and in his announcement, he noted that his very life and experiences proves that the left is filled with lies.
Scott noted that his mother is his “favorite American” and noted that he has her to thank for his life.
Per Breitbart News:
“For those of you who wonder if it’s possible for a broken kid from a broken home to rise above those circumstances, the answer is yes,” Scott said to thunderous applause.
“We live in the land where it is absolutely possible for a kid raised in poverty by a single mother in a single bedroom small apartment to one day serve in the People’s House and maybe even the White House,” Scott said.
In 2008, Scott ran for and won a seat in the South Carolina State House—and two years later, during the 2010 Tea Party wave, was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Two more years down the road, in 2012, when then-Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) resigned to take over the Heritage Foundation, then-Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) appointed Scott to the U.S. Senate to replace him. Scott won the seat again in a 2014 special election and was reelected to full terms in 2016 and 2022. Now, Scott is seeking the presidency.
“I’m announcing today I’m running for president of the United States,” Scott said as the crowd chanted his name.
Scott is just one of a growing number of Republicans announcing their entry into the race.
Along with Donald Trump, we have Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Larry Elder, and Asa Hutchinson. Likely entries include Ron DeSantis, Mike Pence, Chris Sununu, and Chris Christie.
