Republican Senator Tim Scott Officially Enters the 2024 Presidential Race

South Carolina GOP Sen. Tim Scott has officially entered the 2024 presidential race, filing the statement of his candidacy with the Federal Election Commission Friday.

He launched an exploratory committee in April and plans to be in his hometown of North Charleston on Monday to announce his candidacy, before hitting the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire. According to an adviser, his campaign has bought $5.5 million in television ads that will air statewide in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. The ads will run through the first GOP presidential debate, in a buy that includes broadcast TV, cable, satellite and radio.

Scott’s campaign will also launch what his adviser said was a substantial seven-figure digital ad campaign during that period.
