GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Senator Tim Scott spoke to the Fourth District Republican Club at their breakfast Friday morning in Greenville County.

The breakfast took place at the Commerce Club.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be back in Greenville with South Carolinians working tirelessly to save our country,” said Tim Scott. 

Scott’s trip to Greenville comes on the heels of his Faith in America Town Hall series, where he held town halls in South Carolina, Iowa, and New Hampshire. 

At the breakfast, Scott was interviewed about his policies on wide-ranging topics from the economy to the southern border wall – a topic he tied back to the ongoing fentanyl epidemic. 

“We saw over 100,000 Americans lose their lives to overdoses,” Scott said. “We are in the middle of a mental health pandemic in this country and we’re not facing up to the reality of it.”

The senator, who is expected to announce his presidential bid in North Charleston on May 22, also discussed his support for school choice, which would allow some families to use taxpayer dollars to pay for private schools.
