SCDP Statement on Tim Scott’s Official Presidential Announcement

May 19, 2023

In response to Senator Tim Scott officially jumping into the 2024 race, South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Christale Spain released the following statement: 

“Here in South Carolina, we know how dangerous Tea Party extremist Tim Scott is, and based on the last few weeks, the rest of America is finding out too. From promising to sign the most conservative abortion ban possible as president, to doubling down on his role as ‘architect’ of the 2017 GOP tax scam that pushed tax cuts for the ultra wealthy at the expense of working families, Scott has proven himself to be just as MAGA as the rest of the 2024 field.”

“South Carolina Democrats will continue to hold him accountable for his record.”
