South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has dropped out of the 2024 race for the presidency, and declared that he's endorsing no one. Scott made the official announcement on Fox Sunday night after canceling campaign stops in Iowa over the weekend.
“I love America more today than I did on May 22,” Scott said. “But when I go back to Iowa, it will not be as a presidential candidate. I am suspending my campaign.”
“I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they’re telling me, ‘Not now, Tim,’” Scott said on Fox News Sunday night. “I don’t think they’re saying, Trey, ‘No.’ But I do think they’re saying, ‘Not now.’”
On Sunday morning, Scott posted "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."
Scott has participated in all three RNC debates, but has failed to crack double digits in polling. Scott said he has no interest in a spot as vice president on another candidate's ticket. The senator launched his campaign in May 2022, campaigning on a mostly positive message using his life story of being raised by a single mother who ended up becoming the only sitting black Republican senator.
Though Scott had a $22 million war chest when he entered the race his campaign struggled to gain momentum and with a high cash burn rate.
Last month, Scott’s campaign announced the senator was going “all in on Iowa” and moving its headquarters to West Des Moines, as the “make-or-break” state.
The front runner in the race for the Republican nomination is President Donald Trump. Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis are neck-and-neck for a far second place. Other candidates include Vivek Ramaswamy and Chris Christie, both of whom have been outspoken on the debate stage but haven't made a dent in polling.
