Scott Campaign Press Release - Tim Scott Previews Debate: I Will Be The Voice For Those Who Feel Voiceless
CHARLESTON, SC – Today, Tim Scott appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss his campaign and what to expect at the upcoming GOP Presidential debate. The debate will air live on Fox Business on Wednesday, September 27, at 9 PM ET.
Bill Hemmer: It might have been a funny moment there. Question though, serious question, is that the Tim Scott we see on Wednesday night?
Tim Scott: Yeah. I think what you see, what you just played is exactly what I hope to see. Hope you see on Wednesday night. Is a guy being authentically who he is. I wanna be myself. The goal is for us to be able to have a conversation about the most important issues facing this nation and frankly defend the next generation of kids who are losing hope that the American Dream will work for a kid in rural Iowa or inner city Chicago. I'm the defender for those who cannot find someone to stand up. I will be the voice for those who feel voiceless because I've been that kid. I felt like there was no hope for my future living in poverty and growing up in a single-parent household. But I will talk about the contrasts that exist on that stage because the American people deserve someone they can have confidence in because we've lived a similar journey, that our obstacles became our opportunities. And frankly, looking in the mirror, the problems revealed the promise. Because we are Americans, we are remarkable, but we have to act like it.
