Today we bring you a Total Spectrum Spotlight interview with Senator Tim Scott (R-SC). He’s widely acknowledged - by folks on either side of the aisle - as a rising star in Washington. His intellect, communication skills, and uncommon common sense have made him a quiet leader on all the committees on which he serves – Finance; Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs; Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions; and Small Business – and on the Floor of the Senate.
He often talks about his goal to positively impact lives. His signature achievement was the creation of Opportunity Zones, which became part of the 2017 tax reform legislation. Opportunity Zones have brought billions of dollars in private investment into distressed areas throughout our country, which in turn has brought jobs, hope, and new opportunities for millions of Americans.
Senator Scott is a former small business owner, having operated an insurance agency in Charleston. He is in his second term in the Senate, and previously served on the Charleston Country Council, the South Carolina House of Representatives, and the U.S. House of Representatives before being sworn into the U.S. Senate in 2013.
Watch this relatively short interview, and you’ll see why Senator Tim Scott is a rising star.
