  • The Next to Declare? It Sure Looks Like Tim Scott Is About to Announce His Candidacy for President

    Amid all the back and forth between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, you would think we’re down to the last two candidates for president and that it’s almost November. However, there are three declared Republicans in the race, and more are on the way. Along with Trump, you’ve got Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy. DeSantis hasn’t even declared but his recent rhetoric – including finally responding to Trump as dismissively as Trump’s childish insults deserve – shows you can expect him to (probably after Florida’s legislative session is over). Other candidates are expected to jump in, and that includes Senator...

    Government tries to ban Blair aide's revelationsBy Patrick Hennessy and Melissa Kite (Filed: 27/06/2004) The government is attempting to censor a new book by one of Tony Blair's former key advisers that will reveal embarrassing new details of the fiery relationship between the Prime Minister and Gordon Brown. Sir Andrew Turnbull, the Cabinet Secretary, is pressing Derek Scott, who was Mr Blair's chief economics adviser from 1997 until last December, to remove large sections of his account of his time at No 10 on the grounds that they breach the Official Secrets Act. The book, Off Whitehall, will be published...

    During an appearance on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) discussed the division in the country and how to overcome it. The South Carolina Republican U.S. Senator said the left was responsible by attempting to create a “grievance culture.” However, he argued the country should not be defined by its “original sin, but instead by its story of redemption. “So, you talk with an optimistic message, and we talked about how you are highlighting faith not only in the religious sense but that you want Americans to have faith in each other,” host Shannon Bream...

    South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is taking steps to run for president, people familiar with his plans said, adding to the stable of Republicans looking to wrest the party mantle from former President Donald Trump. Mr. Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, is testing a message with GOP voters in key early states focused on unity and optimism as some Republicans say it is time to move on from the Trump era. Mr. Trump has announced a bid for president in the 2024 election. Jennifer DeCasper, a Scott senior adviser, said he was “excited to share his vision...

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) invited President Biden to debate over Social Security and Medicare on Thursday while the president is in Florida after days of the White House and the GOP sparring over whether the programs are at risk of facing funding cuts. “Since you can’t stop talking about me and lying to Floridians about Social Security and Medicare, I’m sure you’ll accept my invitation to debate the issue,” Scott wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be back in Florida tonight. You pick the time and place.”

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) says he is “tired of caving” on the debt limit and is dialing up the pressure on Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) not to swoop in to strike a last-minute deal with President Biden. Scott’s full-court press on McConnell is an extension of their battle last year over the leadership of the Senate GOP conference, which McConnell won in a closed-door leadership election in November. Scott tried to oust McConnell from the top Senate Republican leader’s spot after Republicans failed to win the Senate majority in November and helped lead the fight against passing the...

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said on Sunday that he is talking with a pair of Republican senators about a potential policing reform package, after the killing of Tyre Nichols in Memphis, Tenn. reignited a congressional push to pass reform legislation. Booker was a lead negotiator of an unsuccessful effort to pass a policing reform bill in 2021 with Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.). Now, Booker says he and Scott have “not stopped talking” about the issue since the failed efforts two years ago.

    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) urged a pair of senators that previously led talks on police reform to revive their push to pass a bipartisan reform package in the wake of the death of Tyre Nichols after he was beaten by police in Memphis. Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.) led negotiations on a policing reform bill that failed in 2021 after the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minnesota. After the House passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, its Senate counterparts ultimately gave up on efforts to find a compromise.

    The Biden administration appears to have lied about adding more than a million jobs in the second quarter of this year to mitigate economic data that showed the United States was entering into a recession ahead of the midterm elections. The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia released a report last week shooting down the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) claim that the U.S. added more than a million jobs from March to June of 2022. According to the Philadelphia Fed’s analysis of the numbers, the U.S. added a mere 10,500 jobs in that time period, as opposed to the...

Rick Scott (R-FL) defended the National Republican Senatorial Committee amid calls that its performance under his leadership should be audited after Republicans failed to take the Senate majority in the midterm elections.

President Trump spoke about a Scott challenge to McConnell in a n interview last week with Glenn Beck, “I think Rick Scott would be...

    A Democratic legislator is missing from the House of Representatives and potentially denying Democrats one vote as they try to stop the GOP’s narrow majority from taking control of the House. Rep. David Scott (D-GA), age 77, has not been seen in public for weeks, even during his landslide win on election day. His disappearance has prompted chatter that he is incapacitated or worse. He is expected to appear on January 3 in Congress, to be sworn in as the reflected representative for the 13th district of Georgia. The district is south of Atlanta and is overwhelmingly African-American. Neither Scott’s...
