    Emily Brooks of the Washington Examiner highlights a new national Republican effort to promote South Carolina's Sen. Tim Scott.

  • The Republican National Committee is launching a seven-figure ad featuring Sen. Tim Scott, marking an aggressive strategy to combat President Joe Biden's agenda during a non-election year and demonstrating the South Carolina senator's rising star status.
  • The 30-second ad, provided exclusively to the Washington Examiner, showcases audio from Scott's Republican rebuttal to Biden's joint address to Congress in April. It will run on cable networks.
  • "A president who promised to bring us together should not be pushing agendas that tear us apart," Scott says as the ad displays news coverage of missile strikes on Israel, a line of cars waiting for gas following a ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, and migrants arriving at the Southern border.
  • "Our best future will not come from Washington schemes or socialist dreams. It will come from you, the American people," he continues, with the ad picturing Scott as it ends on a positive note: "The best is yet to come."
  • "Joe Biden has offered nothing but divisive partisanship and failed policies," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. "With Americans more divided than ever, thanks to his failed leadership, the Republican Party is proud to offer a better vision for America, which is why we are bringing our conservative message of unity and prosperity to the national airwaves. Our winning Republican agenda will triumph over Democrats' politics of division and lead our nation towards a better, brighter future."
  • Starting a high-dollar television campaign in an off-year is another example of the strong effort that national Republicans are putting into winning back both chambers of Congress in 2022. The Senate is currently evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, and Republicans need to win just a handful of seats to control the House.
