"Dream the future and craft it today." Incumbent Republican United States Senator Tim Scott visited the University of South Carolina last week to share this message with students and also to speak about topics ranging from education, infrastructure and the presidential election. The North Charleston senator said he visits a different university every month to have a dialogue with students. One USC sophomore in attendance said Scott's words were motivating.
"It's inspirational and encouraging," said Colin Hungerpiller, USC student body senator. "That's what you want to see in our nation's elected officials."
USC sophomore and student body senator James Teal said he knows where his vote will be going come election day.
"I'm happy. I know I'll be voting for him," said Teal.
Scott is up for re-election for the United States Senate Tuesday, but facing several challengers including Democratic candidate Thomas Dixon, Constitution Party candidate Bill Bledsoe, and American Party candidate Michael Scarborough. A Senate seat holds a term of six years. The polls are open election day 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
