U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) completed a 46-county tour of South Carolina this week, visiting every county in the state since he joined the Senate earlier this year. Senator Scott has hosted and participated in a variety of events in each county, including town hall meetings, employer site visits, meetings with civic and church organizations, school visits, and even sporting events. He wrapped up the tour yesterday by speaking to the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce and hosting meet-and-greets in Abbeville and McCormick.
"The most important part of my job as a senator is meeting people across South Carolina and hearing their concerns about what is going on in Washington. South Carolinians are hard-working, optimistic people who are concerned about the overreach of the federal government," Scott said. "I've been inspired by my visits to schools throughout the state. Our kids deserve every opportunity to succeed in a system that suits the unique needs of our state and local communities. I'm looking forward to continuing these conversations as we work to create a better and brighter future for our country with greater economic opportunity and less government interference."
