“I will never back down in defense of the conservative values that make America exceptional.”
CHARLESTON, SC – Senator Tim Scott launched today his Exploratory Committee for President of the United States.
To announce the formation of the exploratory committee, Tim released a video on April 12, the day marking the beginning of the Civil War. Filmed by Fort Sumter, Tim shares how our nation is once again being tested.
Tim Scott’s exploratory launch precedes a swing this week through Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina as he continues his Faith in America tour.
On this day, April 12, 1861, in this harbor, the first shots of the Civil War were fired and our country faced the defining moment: Would we truly be one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
America’s soul was put to the test – and we prevailed.
Today, our country is once again being tested. Once again, our divisions run deep and the threat to our future is real. Joe Biden and the radical left have chosen a culture of grievance over greatness. They’re promoting victimhood instead of personal responsibility and they’re indoctrinating our children to believe we live in an evil country.
Because I disrupt their narrative. I threaten their control. They know the truth of my life disproves their lies.
See, I was raised by a single mother in poverty. The spoons in our apartment were plastic, not silver. But we had faith. We put in the work and we had an unwavering belief that we too could live the American dream.I know America is the land of opportunity, not a land of oppression. I know it because I’ve lived it. That’s why it pains my soul to see the Biden liberals attacking every rung of the ladder that helped me climb.
If the radical left gets their way millions more families will be trapped in failing schools, crime-ridden neighborhoods, and crushing inflation.
But not on my watch. This is personal to me. I will never back down in defense of the conservative values that make America exceptional.
And that’s why I’m announcing my exploratory committee for President of the United States.
I bear witness that America can do for anyone what she has done for me!
But we must rise up to the challenges of our time. This is the fight we must win.
And that will take faith. Faith in God, faith in each other, and faith in America.
