Tim Scott Addresses His Relationship Status Amid Questions About Him Being Unmarried

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) said in an interview over the weekend that he is in a relationship with a woman which come as questions have swirled over why he is not married.

The Republican presidential candidate made the remarks during an interview with Brian Kilmeade where Kilmeade pressed Scott on the matter in light of a report from Axios about concerns from major GOP donors over the matter.

The report noted that an unmarried presidential candidate has not been elected to the nation’s highest office in 139 years.

“Well, obviously, at this point I’m taken, I have a wonderful girlfriend, and we have a wonderful relationship,” Scott said. “The good news is, God has blessed me with a smart Christian woman. That’s great news.”

Scott said that his unmarried status was garnering attention because opponents view him as a political threat as he “rise[s] in the polls.” National polling has largely showed Scott’s campaign stagnating in the 2%-4% range for months.

“The headlines are there because as I rise in the polls, as people show up at my my town halls, it scares even my opponents,” Scott claimed. “Everybody wants to find a way to win this race. I’m going to focus on having that optimistic positive message deliver the backbone and staying focused on the American people who say they like me a lot, and I want to make sure they have a chance to make me their president.”

Scott said that at some point the media will meet his girlfriend.
