Senator Tim Scott Announces Launch of Presidential Exploratory Committee

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) announced early Wednesday that he is launching a 2024 presidential exploratory committee, making him one of the highest-profile Republicans to potentially challenge former President Trump for the GOP nomination.

“I know America is a land of opportunity, not a land of oppression. I know it because I lived it,” Scott said in his announcement video. “That’s why it pains my soul to see the Biden liberals attacking every rung of the ladder that helped me climb. If the radical left gets their way, millions more families will be trapped in failing schools, crime ridden neighborhoods and crushing inflation. Not on my watch.”

“This is personal to me. I will never back down in defense of the conservative values that make America exceptional,” he added. “And that’s why I’m announcing my exploratory committee for President of the United States.”
