Republican Goes FULL RINO – Announces Endorsement
(TheRedWire.com) – After the 2022 State of the Union speech by President Joe Biden, Republicans chose Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) to give the rebuttal. Afterward, some believed he positioned himself to become an eventual GOP presidential hopeful. Still, he continues to affirm he fully supports Donald Trump if he decides to run in 2024. Yet, on Wednesday, August 3, the South Carolina Senator endorsed Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for re-election.

So, what’s the deal? In January 2021, Murkowski voted to convict the former president, whom Scott says he fully supports. Still, some believe the politician finally exposed his true self and that he may not be the conservative he’s touted himself as being over the last several years. In 2017, after the infamous rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Scott commented that the Commander in Chief compromised his moral authority and eroded his ability to lead.
Soon after, Conservatives became enraged over the Senator’s statement. In an upcoming book, Scott shared that he knew what he was up against and needed to stand his ground. In the end, the Senator was persuasive with the president, and the two worked together. He praised Trump for helping poor Black neighborhoods acquire $75 billion in private equity money.
So, is Tim Scott supporting Murkowski just because she’s a fellow Senator who happens to disdain the former president, or is he a moderate who doesn’t believe what he says?
