South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott has suspended his 2024 presidential campaign, stating that voters have made it clear that it’s not the right time for him.

He also mentioned he won’t be endorsing another candidate and ruled out the possibility of being a running mate.

Despite being a rising star in the GOP, his campaign failed to gain traction in a field dominated by former President Donald Trump. (Trending: Supreme Court Dismisses Case To Keep Trump Off Ballot)

Scott’s decision surprised some of his staff, and his fundraising was not as strong as initially anticipated.

“I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they’re telling me, ‘Not now, Tim,’” Scott said.

“The best way for me to be helpful is to not weigh in,” he said.

“Being vice president has never been on my to-do list,” he added.

“We live in the land where it is possible for a kid raised in poverty by a single mother in a small apartment to one day serve in the People’s House and maybe even the White House.”

The announcement was met with respect from fellow Republicans, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

18-29-year-olds are leaning toward Trump by 2%.

The poll comes amidst Trump’s persistent legal battles, which he has labeled as witch hunts meant to pull him from his campaign work.

The former president also leads among 30-to-39-year-olds by about 11 points, 49.6 percent to 38.5 percent.
