DNC Statement on Tim Scott’s 2024 Announcement
April 12, 2023
Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to Senator Tim Scott’s 2024 announcement:
“Tim Scott wants to govern from the ‘far, conservative right’ as a proud member of the Tea Party, and his extreme record proves it. Even before he refused to name a policy difference with Trump, Scott was a fierce advocate of the MAGA agenda – supporting national abortion bans and championing plans to end Medicare and Social Security as we know them. As an ‘architect’ of Trump’s tax law, Scott gifted corporations billions and has been a longtime champion of rolling back regulations on big banks.
“There’s no question that special interests are celebrating as Tim Scott throws his hat into the 2024 race for the MAGA base.”
