South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott withdrew from the Republican Presidential race this week, and the reaction was “Ho Hum”!
Scott may be well liked by his Senate colleagues, and was the only US Senator running for President in this round of elections, but he contributed nothing at all to the race, coming across as very weak, and mostly invoking God to the point of turning many people off, as he is a supporter of church and state combination in government, which is NOT the plan of the Founding Fathers who started this nation!
His leaving the race emboldens his South Carolina colleague, former Governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who actually appointed Scott to his Senate seat a decade ago.
Haley looks more than ever the prime alternative to Donald Trump, if he is able to be kept out of the race by legal matters, but Haley first would need to show her strength in New Hampshire and Nevada, and somehow, win her home state South Carolina primary on February 24, which seems quite a challenge at this point.
Clearly, Tim Scott did not make a dent in the Presidential race, so the Senate had no significance in this upcoming Presidential Election of 2024!
