Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who recently allied himself with former President Donald Trump, is now manifesting a comparable affiliation in his personal life.
Fox News reports that the former presidential candidate and Republican from South Carolina has declared his intention to marry his longtime companion, Mindy Noce, following their Saturday evening proposal on Kiawah Island, South Carolina. He told anchor Trey Gowdy, who confirmed the news, that it was the most momentous occasion of his life since converting to Christianity.
“As a guy who is mostly an introvert and on the quiet side, having to have a conversation about the engagement is a little, you know, uncomfortable in a way, but it’s the most exciting thing I’ll do with my life besides making Jesus my Lord,” Scott said in an interview Sunday.
“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions and goals that I do,” he said.
“Going to the beach and getting on one knee, and asking Mindy to marry me was so much more important than anything else, and I wanted to make sure that that sacred day would not be disturbed by anything political,” Scott told Gowdy.
On a particular day, the two individuals came into contact while participating in a Bible study session subsequent to their morning church service. Noce, an accomplished South Carolina real estate developer, is the parent of three biological children. Noce was introduced to a nationwide audience in a brief manner by Senator Scott during the November Republican presidential debate.
“My joke is as soon as I saw her picture, I figured it out. But the truth is about two weeks into it, I knew there was something very different about her and her faith,” he said. “In our first conversation that went about an hour and a half or two, we ended up deciding to do a Bible study together.”
Following his November campaign suspension, Scott joined the ranks of former presidents who have endorsed President Trump. On Sunday evening, Ron DeSantis, who had withdrawn from the race after a period of introspection in Florida, joined him. On Sunday, Scott reiterated that the difficulties Americans are enduring under President Joe Biden are wearing them down and that he would endeavor to effect a change in November.
“[I]t’s time for us to unite our party so that we make sure that the only target we’re talking about is firing Joe Biden,” Sen. Scott told Fox News.
“Our country can’t take four more years. I’m not sure we could take ten more months,” he said. “The best way for us to get rid of Joe Biden as our president is to unite our party now behind Donald Trump.”
From my time on the border near Lukeville, Arizona. The port of entry closed because so many illegal aliens were there. Mostly male illegal aliens from the African countries of Senegal and Guinea which are majority Islamic. Tensions were very high because people tried to cut in… pic.twitter.com/COoB6te6AE
