Tim Scott to Appear on Stage with Trump at Rally as Running Mate Rumors Swirl

Republican Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is expected to join President Donald Trump on stage for a campaign rally in South Carolina Wednesday night.

The news comes amid growing rumors he could be chosen as Trump’s running mate.

Scott will be on stage with Trump at the 45th president’s Get Out the Vote rally at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, the Washington Examiner reported.

The rally comes just 10 days before the South Carolina GOP primary on February 24.

In an interview with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo earlier this month, Trump name-dropped Scott.

He also named South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.

He dropped the names while speaking about the criteria he was looking for in a potential running mate.

Trump at the time also denied reports that his campaign reached out to independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to explore a potential ticket with him early on in the campaign season.

Trump says the interaction “never happened.”

Scott, responding to Trump’s consideration, told Fox News on February 6  that his top priority was ensuring the 45th president beats Democrat President Joe Biden.

“The only thing I can tell you is that the one thing we need is four more years of President Donald Trump,” Scott said.

“We were better off under Trump.

“In order for us to be successful, the one thing I can’t afford to do is take my eye off the ball.

“The eye on the ball means making sure that President Trump gets four more years.”

Scott, who suspended his own 2024 presidential campaign in November, endorsed Trump days before the New Hampshire primary.

Meanwhile, Trump’s lone remaining GOP rival Nikki Haley, coming off another loss in the Nevada primary, recently barnstormed across her home state of South Carolina, where she once served as governor.

Haley is heading to Texas later this week for fundraising and campaigning in the Super Tuesday state.

Most South Carolina Republican officials at the state and federal level are backing Trump’s White House bid.
