Things are looking up for Sen. Tim Scott in his hopes for the White House.
In just 24 hours, Scott raised $1 million for his presidential campaign just one week ahead of the second GOP debates, The Hill reports. With Scott trailing behind his Republican opponents, the massive fundraising effort gives his chance at the Oval Office a boost in national polling.
His numbers had a positive look in Iowa after announcing his relationship with “a lovely Christian girl.” However, he still has his work cut out for the debate set in Simi Valley, California. Scott’s campaign spokesperson, Matt Gorman, said in a statement that the candidate’s debate tactics will surround policy outlooks.
“Tim looks forward to being back on the debate stage to draw the serious policy distinctions between the candidates,” Gorman said.
“Whether it be the economy, parental rights, or his vision for the country, Tim is prepared to have a conversation with voters, be the adult in the room, and demonstrate why he is the strongest candidate to beat Joe Biden.”
“I’d encourage you to remember that these nights are merely a single moment in time. Any candidate who hopes to truly capitalize on it must be disciplined and built for the long haul.”
Luckily for Scott and the other candidates, Republican head honcho Donald Trump is reportedly skipping the second debate on Sept. 27 to speak in front of union workers in Detroit regarding talks of a major autoworkers strike.
