Tim Scott Eyes VP Spot with Trump, Rises as GOP Star in South Carolina

South Carolina has a rising star in its midst, and his name is Tim Scott. From humble beginnings, Scott’s journey is as American as apple pie, complete with a rags-to-riches tale featuring chicken sandwiches and a hefty dose of elbow grease. As a teenager, Scott landed a job at Chick-fil-A thanks to the benevolent hand of manager John Moniz. This wasn’t just any job, but a gateway to mentorship that spanned four crucial years, sculpting Scott into a future businessman and politician.

Fast forward to the present, and Senator Tim Scott is positioned for another leap, eyeing the opportunity to be former President Donald Trump’s running mate. Scott, a rare Black Republican senator, credits Moniz’s mentorship for his escape from a dead-end life, but let’s not overlook Scott’s own relentless drive and hustle.

Governor Nikki Haley propelled Scott further into the political stratosphere when she appointed him to fill a Senate vacancy in 2012, after Jim DeMint stepped down. That seat was a launchpad, and Scott soared, securing over 60% of the vote in his Senate campaigns, proving his undeniable appeal to South Carolina voters. Scott kept his nose clean, avoiding internal party drama and building allies rather than adversaries.

However, Scott’s aspirations haven’t all been smooth sailing. His hopes for a presidential bid were overshadowed by Trump’s lingering influence and unwavering supporter base. South Carolina doubled the trouble with two candidates in the mix, the other being none other than Nikki Haley. Scott’s campaign fizzled, but he rebounded by throwing his weight behind Trump instead of licking his wounds. 

 

Trump, a man who values loyalty perhaps above all, took notice. Scott’s unwavering support didn’t go unnoticed at Trump rallies, where he stood firm, dodging tricky questions and backing Trump’s positions, despite the odd awkward moment.

Should Trump decide on a different running mate, Scott’s future remains bright. True to his word, Scott promised to serve just two terms in the Senate. However, his supporters hint at his return as a potential governor of South Carolina. At 58, Scott still has plenty of gas in the tank for future political endeavors, including another possible run for the White House.

And if navigating the high-stakes world of politics weren’t enough, Scott is also gearing up for personal changes, with marriage plans later this year. Loyalty tests loom large, but Scott seems adept at playing his cards right, burning as few bridges as possible.
