Iowa and New Hampshire echo Tim Scott speech

Saint Gott Scott’s GOP, President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress, received a thumb impression from some Republicans of the two states that cut the calendar containing the presidential nomination.

The South Carolina senator used his response speech Wednesday night to criticize the president’s proposals, arguing that Biden had failed to deliver on promises made during the 2020 White House race. The only Black Republican in the Senate alleged that “in three months, the actions of the President and his party are pulling us further.”

Scott, who is set to reunite in 2022, is considered a possible 2024 Republican presidential contender by political pundits.

New Hampshire GOP President Steve Stepanek told Fox News on Thursday, “I felt his speech was correct. It was emotional. He really, I think, has the ability to express his personal story in a way that people are really brought up by it. “

“I’m watching Sen. because I think great things are in front of him,” Stepanek said.

“I haven’t heard of Scott’s name,” said Fren Vendelbo, a veteran conservative activist from New Hampshire.

But he speculated that “after tomorrow night, it will probably happen, and I’m guessing he’s probably going to get a few phone calls from various Republican committees, inviting him to speak something.”

Asked if could see a Granite State invitation in the future, Stepanek replied, “We’d love to have him.”

For potential 2024 contenders facing reelection next year, opening up too much about the next GOP presidential nomination race is political misconduct. In an interview with Fox News earlier this month, was quick to downplay any talk of the next race for the White House.

“I can’t think of any office beyond winning my primary in June of 2022,” he emphasized. “That is my primary objective and then I will worry about normal.”

declared that his sole purpose is to become the United States Senator for the great state of South Carolina. Then, coming back to his high school and college football playing days, he said, “If you don’t focus on this weekend, there’s no more weekend.”

When he runs for reunion next year, is also flying around the country to help fellow Republicans on the ballot in mid-2022. Two weeks ago, those trips took him to Iowa, as he outlined a state GOP fundraising event. Stops speculated more about his potential national ambitions in 2024.

of the senator’s visit, Iowa GOP chair Jeff Kaufman called a “man of integrity” and a “man of action.”

“I think my people here just want to see him up front and personal,” told Fox News at the time. “To be real honest with you, I think they want to see the man behind the legend.”

Fast forward to the present, and Luke Martz, an Iowa-based Republican adviser, said that when it arrives in 2024, Scott’s GOP response speech “certainly doesn’t hurt.”

“You get a great national spotlight opportunity to talk about the difference between your party and the president and take it from there. This is a great opportunity for anyone.
