( – The Republican party is leaving Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to lead them in energizing Black voters ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Scott is the only Black Republican with a seat in the Senate. This week, he announced that he will be traveling to battleground states in order to talk with Black voters about the reasons why they should look to re-elect former President Donald Trump. This is part of a Great Opportunity PAC initiative. 

Scott pointed out that currently there was a growing opportunity as many African Americans and other minority voters are coming to the Republican party. He added that this is in contrast to what had happened during the Trump years and that it is because of President Biden’s failures and the way they were affecting minority Americans. 

He continued by pointing out it is not only racial but that it would “manifest itself in a racial shift” that is unlike anything they have seen in the last three decades. He added that working-class Americans were coming together to deal with issues that they were coming face to face with each day. These issues are even more prominent in the African American community. 

The Republican party along with Scott is going to be focusing on swinging Black male voters in an attempt to build on the demographic’s increasing support. 

In 2012, 93 percent of the Black vote had gone to former President Barack Obama, but since then the percentage of support for the Democrats has continued to drop. While in 2016 Trump had received just 8 percent of the Black vote, in 2020 that number increased to 12 percent.
