Senator Tim Scott – Gala Speaker

tim_scott_official_portrait_113th_congressSenator Scott has a powerful story that speaks to what we stand for as Republicans.

He was raised in a single parent household in North Charleston, seeing his mom work 16 hour days to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.

He got his first job, changing oil at a gas station, when he was 13. After almost failing out of high school as a freshman, he was fortunate to meet his mentor, a Chick Fil-a operator named John Moniz, who helped teach him conservative values.

Through the love and strength imparted by his mom, and Moniz’s idea that you could ‘think your way out of poverty,’ Tim’s passion for conservative values began.

After serving residents of the Palmetto State for nearly two decades, Tim joined the United States Senate in January 2013.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to add Senator Scott to this year’s line up of tremendous Republican speakers. The few tickets we have left probably won’t last the day!
