Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) becomes the sixth Republican to officially enter the 2024 presidential race. Scott, the only Black Republican in the U.S. Senate, is touting his inspiring backstory and the conservative credentials he has built over a decade on Capitol Hill. Whether that will be enough to vault him over the other non-Trump candidates and challenge the former president himself for the GOP nomination is very much in question.
