NHDP Statement on Tim Scott’s Trip to New Hampshire
CONCORD, NH — As Tim Scott makes his first New Hampshire visit since officially launching his presidential campaign, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“You don’t need to look very far to see that Tim Scott’s 2024 platform is just another version of the failed Trump-Pence MAGA agenda that Granite Staters have rejected twice. After pledging to sign a national abortion ban the last time he was in New Hampshire, Scott has repeatedly doubled down, committing to signing the ‘most conservative’ ban possible.
If there’s one thing Scott’s far-right campaign has already shown, it’s that his plans to rip away Americans’ freedoms have no place in New Hampshire.”
Here’s a recap of Tim Scott’s extreme MAGA record:
Scott can’t name a single policy difference between himself and Donald Trump, and has praised Trump’s record as president as “monumental.”
He promised to sign “the most conservative” national abortion ban possible after pledging to sign a national abortion ban in New Hampshire.
Scott has also supported some of the most extreme anti-choice legislation in Congress, including legislation that could pave the way for banning forms of birth control.
He’s backed dangerous plans to end Social Security and Medicare as we know them, putting hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters at risk.
Scott is a self-described “architect” of Trump’s 2017 tax giveaways that gifted corporations billions at the expense of working Granite State families.
His Opportunity Zones initiative left small businesses and low income communities out to dry, but gave tax breaks to wealthy real estate developers.
Scott is also one of the biggest advocates for rolling back regulations on the Senate Banking Committee, even opposing stricter regulations a week before two banks crashed.
