Republican Senator Tim Scott is officially exploring a possible bid for the White House in 2024.
Scott announced his plan to form a White House Exploratory Committee, which will set up potential plans for him to run.
“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking the past few months,” Scott said. “I’ve been thinking about my faith. I’ve been thinking about the future of our country. And I’ve been thinking about the Left’s plan to ruin America.”
I will never back down in defense of the conservative values that make America exceptional.
That's why I'm announcing my exploratory committee for President of the United States.
This fight is personal.

More on this story via Breitbart News:
His stop in the Granite State feeds speculation of his White House aspirations which would put him against the clear frontrunner, former President Donald Trump.
The Opportunity Matters Fund Action PAC has already put itself behind Scott in anticipation of his bid and has hired two political operatives in South Carolina — former SC Republican Party chairman Matt Moore as well as Gov. Henry McMaster’s 2022 campaign manager Mark Knoop.
According to Moore, they will both “lead a team focused on sharing Sen. Scott’s opportunity agenda and inspirational vision throughout the state.”
If he enters the field, Scott will join another South Carolinian, former Gov. Nikki Haley, as well as former President Donald Trump, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
