US Republican Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina has dropped out of the 2024 presidential race.
He had hoped to become the first African-American to secure the Republican nomination but while speaking to newsmen, he said the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they are telling him it is not yet his time.
“I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they’re telling me: ‘Not now, Tim.'”
Although Tim Scott was very well funded, he failed to make an appreciable impact in opinion polls. He has not endorsed any of the remaining candidates and he ruled out running for vice-president.
