Americans are looking for the opportunity to work hard and pursue their own American Dreams. Tim Scott talks about the everyday jobs he’s been doing to talk with folks in South Carolina.
With a hardworking single mom and a committed mentor, Tim Scott grew up with strong principles. One of the most important of these is never to give up. Watch the video here.
This will be Scott’s first official defense of the seat in a statewide election.
During an interview last week, Scott, 48, said there has been a learning curve unique to the Senate he’s had to sift through during his time in Washington.
“To make progress you certainly have to be willing to understand that persistence and patience will lead to progress,” he said.
Scott held 146 public meetings in the first 13 months of his appointment to learn what citizens wanted from their new senator. But more recently, he undertook an undercover guise to hear what people really thought, volunteering at one point at a Goodwill Center in Greenville, working at a burrito restaurant elsewhere and riding public buses in Charleston.
