Scott Campaign Press Release - Tim Scott Goes All In On Iowa

October 23, 2023

MARSHALLTOWN, IA  The Tim Scott campaign announced today moves to go all-in on Iowa, seeing an opportunity and wide-open evangelical lane to win the Iowa Republican caucus.

This week, the campaign will double its staff on the ground in Iowa and open a new West Des Moines, Iowa headquarters. Additionally, following the next debate, the Senator will travel across the Hawkeye State every week in the lead-up to the caucus.

The campaign will shift resources from New Hampshire to Iowa, expand audiences to complement the current voter-contact programs, and boost social-conservative paid media efforts in the Hawkeye State. The campaign currently has $1.6 million of TV reserved in Iowa going forward. More staff and resources will head to Iowa in the weeks ahead.

"Tim Scott is all in on Iowa," said Tim Scott for America Campaign Manager Jennifer DeCasper. "As the candidate with the highest net favorables, Tim Scott is best positioned to compete on caucus day. No candidate other than Tim Scott has the resources, the foundation of support, and the message to be successful in the Hawkeye State. We're all in on Iowa as an important first step on the road to winning the nomination."

Tim Scott entered the third quarter with more primary cash available to spend than any other Republican presidential candidate, besides the former president. The Senator's net favorables (+58%) in Iowa are the highest in the field today, and that number is even higher with Iowa Evangelical voters (+69%) who make up a majority of the caucus-going electorate. Tim Scott is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the foundation the campaign has built in Iowa, particularly with persuadable Evangelical voters.

Tim Scott is concluding a five-day swing through Iowa tomorrow, and will be back in the Hawkeye State next week for a series of events.
