Ahead of his expected launch of a 2024 White House campaign later this month, Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina is making return visits the next couple of days to the two states that kick off the GOP presidential nominating calendar.
Scott, a rising star in the GOP and the only Black Republican in the Senate, spends Saturday in Iowa, the state whose caucuses lead off the GOP schedule. He’ll headline a town hall Waukee, in suburban Des Moines.
On Monday and Tuesday, the senator will be in New Hampshire, which holds the first primary and second overall contest in the Republican calendar. He’ll headline a town hall at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics – a must stop for over two decades for White House hopefuls of both major political parties. He’ll also hold meetings in both states with Republican leaders and activists.
A source close to senator highlighted that there’s been plenty of interest ahead of the town halls in Iowa and New Hampshire.
