DES MOINES, Iowa (WHO) — Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina is hoping to be one of the top three finishers in the Republican Iowa Caucus in 66 days.
Within hours of Wednesday night’s GOP debate, he was back on the campaign trail in Iowa. Scott is heavily trailing Donald Trump in the polls, but says Trump is taking credit for some of the work Scott helped pass.
“I think we just continue to contrast the difference between my style and the former president’s style. I think it’s really important, the substance and the style. You think about the success that we had from a legislative standpoint, writing the tax cuts and jobs that I wrote it, he signed it. So, we have an opportunity to contrast the two styles and the substance of the campaigns,” said Sen. Scott.
Scott started Friday with a campaign event in Carroll at 11:30 a.m. He will also make stops in Jefferson and Boone.
