Tim Scott is an American businessman and politician serving as the junior United States senator from South Carolina since 2013.
He was born on September 19, 1965, in North Charleston, South Carolina, to Frances, a nursing assistant, and Ben Scott Sr.
Scott grew up in a poor, single-parent household in North Charleston, South Carolina, and watched his single mother work 16-hour days as a nurse’s assistant to keep him and his brother afloat.
He served in the South Carolina House of Representatives and the U.S. House of Representatives before being elected to the U.S. Senate.
Scott is known for his leadership on tax reform, education, job training, and innovative ideas to reinvest in the nation’s distressed communities.
He has been a national leader on efforts to bring opportunity to every American family, and his signature legislation creating Opportunity Zones was passed as part of the 2017 tax reform package.
Tim Scott girlfriend
Scott recently debuted his girlfriend at the third Republican primary debate in Miami.
The beautiful has since been identified as Mindy Noce, and she is a Charleston-area interior designer and a mother of three.
Scott and Noce have been dating for about a year.
Before this public appearance, Scott had teased the existence of a girlfriend but had not revealed her identity or brought her to campaign events.
Scott, who is 58 years old, has never been married and rarely talks about his romantic relationships.
Tim Scott career
Scott has had a diverse career, starting from his early days as a student leader to his current position as a United States Senator.
He grew up in a working-class, single-parent household, and his parents divorced when he was seven years old.
Scott graduated from the Baptist College at Charleston (now Charleston Southern University) in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
After college, he started selling insurance and eventually grew his business, Tim Scott Allstate, into a 3,000-customer enterprise.
His professional accomplishments enabled him to purchase a home for his mother.
Scott’s political career began with his election to the Charleston County Council in 1995, where he served until 2009.
He then served in the South Carolina House of Representatives before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010.
In 2013, Scott was appointed to the U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy left by Jim DeMint’s resignation.
He was later elected to the Senate in a special election in 2014 and reelected in 2016 and 2022.
Since joining the Senate in 2013, Scott has been a national leader on efforts to bring opportunity to every American family.
His signature legislation creating Opportunity Zones was passed as part of the 2017 tax reform package and has the potential to bring billions of dollars of private investment into distressed communities across the country.
In 2023, Scott announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States.
