Former Republican presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C) will endorse Donald Trump ahead of next week’s New Hampshire primary election.
Scott is reportedly flying with Trump to a rally in New Hampshire on Friday where he will endorse the former president in the GOP primary, according to the New York Times.
Scott has been fielding calls from the Trump, Former U.N Ambassador and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. He only decided recently to endorse Trump believing he is the best candidate of the remaining three in the GOP field who can defeat President Joe Biden.
Scott’s decision not to endorse Haley is significant given that as governor, she appointed him to the Senate in 2012 to fill the vacancy created by retirement of Sen. Jim DeMint.
