Friday, SC US Senator Tim Scott shocked the GOP Presidential race by endorsing former President Donald Trump. Saturday, Scott then took a knee at sunset on Kiawah and got engaged to now fiancee Mindy Noce. The couple met in bible study and have been dating about a year. Noce is reportedly a Charleston designer and mother of three.
Scott says the couple will wed this year. He addressed the whirlwind weekend Sunday night on Fox with longtime pal Trey Gowdy. Scott did not address the possibility of being one of Trump's potential VP picks. Click pic to watch entire video interview:
Two of South Carolina’s top leaders then rallied Saturday night in New Hampshire for Trump, Gov. Henry McMaster, and Lt. Gov. Pamala Evette.
Sunday, Fl. Gov Ron DeSantis shocked the world of politics Sunday but ending his run for the White House and endorsing Trump. Take a listen!
Haley's reaction on the campaign trail ending with, "may the best WOMAN win!" to cheers from supporters in New Hampshire.
"Ron DeSantis has been a good governor, and I wish him well. So far, only one state has voted. Half of its votes went to Donald Trump, and half did not. We’re not a country of coronations. Voters deserve a say in whether we go down the road of Trump and Biden again, or we go down a new conservative road. New Hampshire voters will have their say on Tuesday. When I’m president, I will do everything in my power to show them they made the right decision."
Monday, SC US Rep. Nancy Mace also tossed her endorsement for Trump in the mix:
"I don’t see eye to eye perfectly with any candidate. And until now I’ve stayed out of it. But the time has come to unite behind our nominee. To be honest, it’s been a complete sh*t show since he left the White House. Our country needs to reverse all the damage Joe Biden has done. By every barometer, our lives and our nation were better under President Trump. The economy was booming, our border was locked down and our nation and her allies were safer because our adversaries feared him. Donald Trump’s record in his first term should tell every American how vital it is he be returned to office."
