Tim Scott to offer GOP response to Biden’s joint session address to Congress

Sen. Tim Scott was tapped to offer the Republican response to President Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced on Thursday.

Scott, of South Carolina, the only black Republican in the upper chamber, has been seen as a rising star in the party and potential contender to run for the GOP presidential nomination for 2024.

The South Carolina Republican is looking forward to discussing the party’s “optimistic vision” for the future Wednesday night.

“We face serious challenges on multiple fronts, but I am as confident as I have ever been in the promise and potential of America. I look forward to having an honest conversation with the American people and sharing Republicans’ optimistic vision for expanding opportunity and empowering working families,” Scott said.

His rebuttal to Biden’s upcoming speech comes as Republicans look to navigate where the party should head in a post-Trump period.
