South Carolina Senator Tim Scott Officially Files Paperwork to Run for President in 2024
In a breaking development, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has officially filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to run for president in 2024.
The news was reported by Ali Vitali of NBC.
Senator Scott had been exploring the possibility of a presidential bid, and now he has taken the step of submitting his statement of candidacy to the FEC.
While this announcement doesn’t come as a surprise, it sets the stage for his upcoming declaration of candidacy in person at a rally in South Carolina on Monday.
Following his announcement, Senator Scott will embark on a campaign trail through key early primary states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.
This is a common strategy employed by presidential candidates seeking to gain momentum and support.
The senator’s team has already made significant ad buys, including radio and television spots, as well as a separate digital campaign.
With a substantial war chest at their disposal, the Scott campaign aims to make a strong impression on the airwaves.
Starting on Wednesday, they will launch a $6 million ad buy in Iowa and New Hampshire, covering broadcast, cable, and radio platforms.
Additionally, they have allocated a seven-figure budget for digital advertising.
This means that Tim Scott will not only be visible on the ground, engaging with voters as an official candidate, but he will also be reaching a wide audience through various media channels.
The ads will run from Wednesday through the first debate, ensuring that voters across the two states are exposed to his message and vision.
Senator Scott’s entry into the race adds another dimension to the evolving field of presidential contenders for the 2024 election.
As the campaign progresses, all eyes will be on his strategies, policies, and ability to connect with voters nationwide.
