Timothy Eugene “Tim” Scott, born September 19, 1965 (age 56), is an establishment U.S. Senator from South Carolina. Despite being a Republican, Scott has at times sided with liberals and obstructed conservative priorities.

He is formerly a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from South Carolina's 1st congressional district. Earlier Tim Scott was in the South Carolina House of Representatives.

Mostly a conservative who touts traditional values,[1] Scott made history in being the second black Republican to be popularly elected to the United States Senate after Edward Brooke.

Positions

Conservative positions

A fiscal and social conservative, Scott touted the endorsement of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and defeated the son of Strom Thurmond for the House seat. Scott is the first black Republican elected to Congress from the Deep South since Reconstruction.

The Heritage Foundation has given Scott a lifetime score of 82%.[2] The family research ocuncil gave Tim Scott a 100 percent score for his overall commitment to conservative values. Tim Scott admits that Human life begins at conception (and therefore that abortion is murder) and that homosexuality is an immoral choice, though we all can repent.

Scott was smeared by racist left-wing bigots as "Uncle Tim" and even with the n-word in late April 2021 for asserting that the United States is not a racist country.[3] https://www.frcaction.org/get.cfm?i=PR22D30
