"I will say without any question, our job is to make sure the American Dream is alive and well for the next generation." – Tim Scott

COLUMBIA, SC – On Monday, Tim Scott returned to his home state to officially file for the 2024 South Carolina presidential primary ballot. Tim was joined by an enthusiastic room of Midlands supporters as he made his candidacy official in Columbia, South Carolina.

At the event, Tim emphasized the value of American citizenship and the importance of securing the American Dream for future generations. He also responded to the ongoing war in Israel, declaring we must wipe Hamas off the map.

"The harder we work, the luckier we get," said Tim Scott. "We continue to have a positive message, one anchored in conservative principles. We need a candidate who will restore hope, create opportunities, and unite our country. I thank God that I'm that candidate."

Mary Green: SC Sen Tim Scott files with the SCGOP to appear on the ballot for SC's Feb. 24 Republican presidential primary — chants of "Tim! Tim! Tim!" broke out from supporters here to see it at Doc's BBQ in Columbia.

ABC Columbia: "He will bring our country together. He will do much to heal the racial divides because he's seen what can happen, and the potential and positiveness that can grow. And he's a man of faith and that's very important to me," said a Lexington voter.

Chizi Owiriwa, a graduate of the University of South Carolina, says he initially backed Nikki Haley, but is now all in for Scott.

"His persona is really good. He knows how to take charge. He knows how to fight for people. He knows how to be a voice for the generation. He's a proud South Carolinian. He's a person of faith and that's what we need in these times," Owiriwa said.
