Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC, made an enthusiastic, albeit brief, appearance along with a full slate of Republican candidates at a political rally held in Bluffton’s Oyster Factory Park Monday afternoon, Oct. 3.
Scott is campaigning for reelection in the November midterm race.
Greeted with a standing ovation from 200 to 300 supporters in attendance, Scott addressed the crowd for a little more than 10 minutes. He started his remarks with a prayer for victims of Hurricane Ian and then delivered a populist message that resonated with his supporters.
“In the hardest times in American history, we come together,” Scott said. “We don’t divide. It’s one of the things that makes us the most exceptional people on earth. American exceptionalism is real because we the people come together when it matters most.”
