Sen. Tim Scott rakes in nearly $7 million in fourth quarter

Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), a potential 2024 GOP presidential contender, announced Tuesday that he raised nearly $7 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 for his reelection bid, emphasizing his strength as a fundraiser.

Scott’s campaign announced that he has brought in an eye-popping $37.3 million for the 2022 cycle thus far and ended last year with $21.5 million in the bank. Scott is up for reelection this year but is not anticipated to face any significant obstacles to keeping his seat. 

“Senator Tim Scott has built an unmatched grassroots network of supporters that will power him to another term in the Senate in 2022,” said Sam Oh, a consultant for Scott’s reelection campaign. “As Biden’s disastrous agenda continues to hurt our economy, our pocketbooks, and our way of life, the Senator’s message is resonating with voters who want a Republican Senate majority that will hold this administration accountable.”

While Scott is expected to coast to reelection, his fundraising prowess could prove useful in 2024, when some suggest he could seek a run at the White House.

Scott last year traveled to Iowa and New Hampshire, two critical caucus and primary states, and saw his profile rise further in 2021 when he gave a well-received response to President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress.

Scott has insisted he’s focused on reelection but has also said that the 2022 contest will be his last Senate race.

Several Republicans are considering jumping into the 2024 race, including former President Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. However, many are anticipated to refrain from running if Trump launches a comeback bid.
