Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) announced the suspension of his presidential campaign Sunday, as lagging poll numbers raised questions about his ability to make the party’s next primary debate.
Scott announced his exit from the race on Trey Gowdy’s Fox News show Sunday Night in America saying the voters have been “really clear” in telling him “Not now, Tim.”
The South Carolina Republican said he didn’t believe that the voters were rejecting him or saying “no” to him rather simply “not now.”
Scott also refused to endorse any other candidate in the race saying the “best way for me to be helpful is to not weigh in,” adding that the voters were “really smart.”
The U.S. Senator also ruled out the possibility of becoming the eventual candidate’s running mate saying “being vice president has never been on my to-do list.”
