Sen. Tim Scott dodges VP questions: ‘Shouldn’t make this about me’

By Eden Villalovas | The Gazette

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) danced around questions about potentially becoming former President Donald Trump’s running mate as speculation arises about his 2024 ticket, saying the focus shouldn’t be on him or another possible candidate for vice president.

“My answer would be yes to America having four more years of Donald Trump. I don’t think any one of us should make this about me or any other person who might be the candidate for vice president,” Scott told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Tuesday. 

Trump was not on Nevada’s primary ballot, which former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley lost on Tuesday to “none of these candidates.” Haley’s stinging defeat without Trump on the ballot further cements his status to become the Republican nominee. Trump will also appear on the ballot in Thursday’s caucuses.
