Former Republican presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is engaged.
Scott reportedly proposed to his girlfriend, Mindy Noce, Saturday evening at the beach in Kiawah Island in South Carolina,” the Washington Post reports.
“As a guy who is mostly an introvert and on the quiet side, having to have a conversation about the engagement is a little, you know, uncomfortable in a way, but it’s the most exciting thing I’ll do with my life besides making Jesus my Lord,” Scott said
“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions and goals that I do,” he added.
Scott celebrated the moment on X/Twitter writing: “She said YES. Mindy, thank you for making me the luckiest man in the world,” he added before quoting the Bible: “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
They have been dating for about a year after meeting at church, but Scott kept their relationship out of the public’s eye.
Scott and Noce first appeared in public together last November during the third GOP primary debate in Miami, Florida after months of speculation about Scott’s personal life on the campaign trail.
Scott, 58, has never been married. He dropped out of the GOP primary shortly after the debate and has since endorsed Donald Trump.
