Senator Tim Scott SUSPENDS presidential campaign
Scott’s move to drop his White House bid comes just four days after he attended the third GOP Republican primary debate with his girlfriend Mindy Noce
Scott, 58, told Fox News in an interview Sunday evening that he has withdrawn his bid for the White House
The lone Black Republican in the U.S. Senate, Scott began his campaign in May, promising to present an optimistic, forward-looking vision for America.
He portrayed himself as a deeply conservative candidate who was more capable of healing political divisions in the United States than Trump and another candidate, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
While Scott enjoyed a modest, but measurable bump in opinion polls in some states over the summer, voter excitement proved short-lived.
He failed to establish and defend a lane for himself in a relatively crowded field.
Like other candidates, he never articulated to Trump supporters why they should move on from the former president, who is still well liked by most primary voters.
