Tim Scott announces he's dating a 'lovely Christian girl' during faith event
While Scott is generally private about his personal life, he has said in interviews that he has been dating someone, but her identity is unknown.
Republican 2024 presidential candidate Tim Scott announced to a crowd of evangelical voters in Iowa that he is dating a "lovely Christian girl."
Iowa GOP Attorney General Brenna Bird asked Scott if there was a "special lady" in his life besides his mom.
"I’m dating a lovely Christian girl," the South Carolina senator answered, according to Fox News. "One of the things that I love about the gospel of Jesus Christ is that it points us always in the right direction. Proverbs 18:22 says ‘he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the lord.’"
Scott is the only GOP presidential candidate in the race who has never been married. He is also well known for talking frequently about his faith.
"As a guy who was raised in a single-parent household mired in poverty, I understand that devastation when a family breaks up. I live with the consequences of a father who was not there. I made a commitment to make sure that never happened in my life," Scott said during the event.
"I’m so thankful to know a risen savior that has helped guide my way, and I’m so thankful that he’s allowed my life to intersect at the right time with the right person. And I just say, praise the living God," he added.
While Scott is generally private about his personal life, he has said in a few interviews that he has been dating someone, but her identity is unknown.
