Tim Scott is a small business owner and public servant who is the Republican nominee for Congress in South Carolina’s First District. Tim was born in North Charleston, and grew up in poverty with a single mother who worked 16 hour days to keep him and his brother in school. He also benefited from a mentor, a Chick-fil-A operator, who took him under his wing and guided him when he was at a very impressionable age. Both his mother and his mentor instilled in him conservative, traditional, and religious values which guide him to this day. Tim is a 1988 graduate of Charleston Southern University, earning a B.S. in Political Science. In 1995, Tim was elected to Charleston County Council, becoming the first black Republican elected to county-wide office in South Carolina since Reconstruction. He served on the Council for 13 years, becoming Chairman in 2007. In 2008, Tim Scott was elected to the SC House of Representatives, again becoming the first black Republican to do so. He was elected Chairman of the Freshman Caucus and House Whip. Throughout his 15 years in public service, Tim has never voted for a tax increase. He has received the “Friend of the Taxpayer” commendation from the SC Association of Tax Payers. The Club for Growth’s Conservative Score Card gave Tim an “A” rating, as one of the most conservative members of the SC House. Believing that government cannot create jobs, but can foster the right conditions to spark investment, Tim was heavily involved in bringing Boeing to the Charleston area, and has helped recruit over 20,000 new jobs, with companies such as Daimler Chrysler (now Mercedes), Verizon, Force Protection, Global Aeronautica, Vought Alenia and many others. Tim is the owner of Tim Scott Allstate and has been awarded SC Agency Owner of the Year. He served as Co-Chairman of the Financial Services Committee of the Allstate National Advisory Board from 2004-2008. He is also a partner of Pathway Real Estate Group, LLC.
