The decade's most triggering comedy
Republican presidential candidate Tim Scott said on Sunday that his goal for the next Republican presidential debate was “being authentically” himself.
Scott talked about the upcoming second debate this week in California during an interview with Bill Hemmer on “Fox News Sunday.”
“[What I] hope you see on Wednesday night is a guy being authentically who he is. I wanna be myself,” he said. “The goal is for us to be able to have a conversation about the most important issues facing this nation and frankly defend the next generation of kids who are losing hope that the American dream will work for a kid in rural Iowa or inner city Chicago.”
Hemmer asked Scott about his poll numbers, noting that former President Donald Trump has not slipped in the polls.
“Do you need a breakout moment?” Hemmer asked.
“I don’t think so. What I need to do is to continue to do what I have been doing, showing up,” he said. “The more time I spend in Iowa, the better off I will be. The more time I spend in New Hampshire, the better off I will be. The good news is polls don’t vote, but people do.”
“And so I need to make sure that I find myself in front of the most people as possible on a consistent basis,” he continued. “The more I do that, the better off we will be. The good news is this campaign is just getting ready to see the fourth quarter. I love football season. I love football and I like the fourth quarter.”
