South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the U.S. Senate, officially files to run for president in the 2024 election, according to the Federal Election Commission’s website.

Scott’s, 57, team highlights his most recent triumph as a political strength. After a landslide victory in November, defeating his Democratic opponent by more than 20 percentage points, he was reelected in South Carolina. With such success in the State, some are expecting that he can maintain this momentum on a larger scale in the 2024 nationwide election.
