The only sitting U.S. Senator to throw his hat into the presidential race has suspended his campaign for the White House.
U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, the two-term junior senator from South Carolina, announced late Sunday that he would no longer actively seek the Republican party nomination.
“Tonight, I suspended my campaign for president. Traveling this country and meeting all of you has been one of the most fantastic experiences of my entire life. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. God Bless the United States of America,” he said via the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
Scott told Fox News he remains committed to a brighter vision of America.
“I am indeed suspending the campaign, but I am going to remain as committed to making sure that this country chooses the right person,” Scott said. “We should all be proud of this country.”
