Last week, Governor Nikki Haley endorsed Governor Mitt Romney for her choice in the GOP presidential race.
Another prominent Republican in South Carolina, 1st District Congressman Tim Scott, says he has not thrown his support behind any candidate–yet.
“I am not, at this point, endorsing anyone, and of course that includes Mitt Romney as well. This is a very serious process we are going through,” says Scott.
Scott has held town hall meetings in the state for each Republican candidate. He says whoever he and the voters choose is very crucial.
“At the end of the day what we need to understand in South Carolina is that the momentum begins with us. So the decision that we make as voters is the most important decision that we can aid the nominee and gain the momentum necessary to become the next president of the United States,” says Scott.
South Carolina’s primary is January 21–the first in the South.
