Tim Scott will endorse Donald Trump in blow to Nikki Haley

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) will endorse former President Donald Trump Friday to be the 2024 Republican nominee, in a blow to fellow South Carolinian, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Scott plans to endorse Trump for president at a rally in New Hampshire, just days before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary, a source familiar confirmed to the Washington Examiner.

The choice to back Trump rather than Haley is particularly significant given Haley and Scott’s history. When governor, Haley appointed Scott to the Senate in 2012 to replace former Sen. Jim DeMint.

“It is with great pleasure that I am announcing our next U.S. senator to be Congressman Tim Scott,” she said at the time. “I am strongly convinced that the entire state understands that this is the right U.S. senator for our state and our country.”
