(TheRedWire.com) – On Thursday, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott (R) warned against a divided GOP, which he claimed the Democrats could use by weaponizing the Republican candidates against one another during the 2024 campaigns for the White House.
In an interview with Fox News, host Neil Cavuto questioned why the senator, who has joined the 2024 GOP primary race, has not spoken badly about any of the other candidates. Scott argued that in his view “the road to socialism runs right through a divided Republican Party.” He added that anything the Republican candidates say against one another is something that the Democrats can use against them. Scott said on Fox News.
Scott entered the crowded GOP primary last week against former President Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina. Following his campaign launch, Trump argued that Scott’s announcement was “a big step up” from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who he claimed was “totally unelectable.” DeSantis, who joined the Republican race a few days after Scott, is usually in second place according to the GOP primary polls.
DeSantis’s campaign launch on Wednesday on Twitter Spaces was marred with technical difficulties, however, on Thursday Scott declined to make any comments about the event. When asked about whether he would support DeSantis or any other of the GOP candidates if they were to win the Republican nomination over him, Scott responded by stating that every Republican candidate was better than a Democratic candidate.
He added that if he is the nominee, he is looking forward to choosing a “good vice president.”
