Tim Scott Launches New Effort to Aid Trump

(Patriot.Buzz) – Hinting at an aspiration to be his vice-presidential pick, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott launched a new effort in support of former President Donald Trump ahead of the GOP convention in Milwaukee this summer.

Through his aligned Great Opportunity PAC, Senator Scott is directing $14 million to boost Black and Hispanic voter turnout for Trump and other Republican candidates in the upcoming elections.

He and his advisors shared this strategy with reporters and highlighted the efforts to engage minority voters, especially black male voters, whom polls suggest are increasingly disenchanted with Joe Biden.

This substantial financial investment includes $9 million dedicated to voter outreach and an additional $4.8 million allocated to both earned and paid media.

As detailed in a memo to media outlets, more than $500,000 have been earmarked for survey research, data analytics, and operational and legal costs.

As the Senate’s only Black Republican, Scott is framing this initiative as a robust campaign to engage minority voters in key swing states via direct mail, digital and TV advertising and in-person events where he will represent the Republican message.

Recently, Scott and his former presidential campaign manager Jennifer DeCasper met with Republican National Committee co-chairs Lara Trump and Michael Whatley to ensure their voter outreach efforts are in sync with the national GOP strategy.

As of now, there are no details such as the launch timing, ad schedules and campaign duration. Nonetheless, Federal Election Commission filings reveal that Great Opportunity PAC reported having approximately $23.6 million in funds as of early April.

In discussions with the media, Scott emphasizes a “jobs and justice” approach to discussing Black GOP voter engagement.

During a recent meeting at the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s headquarters, he compared economic growth under Trump with the current administration.

“Contrast the Trump years versus the Biden years, the one thing you see very quickly is the bottom quintile grew faster than the top quintile under President Trump,” Scott noted. “You don’t see that happening right now” under Biden, he added.

As for the vice-presidential selection, Trump is expected to announce his choice around the mid-July GOP convention, just days after his scheduled July 11 sentencing in his New York hush-money case.
