Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) spoke on the first night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 24, 2020

"Because of the evolution of the southern heart, in an overwhelmingly white district... the voters judged me not the color of my skin, but on the content of my character," Scott said, noting that we "live in a world that wants you to believe in the bad news—racially, economically and culturally-polarizing news.”

He continued:

“Our family went from Cotton to Congress in one lifetime. And that’s why I believe the next American century can be better than the last.”

Scott added that "supporting the Republican ticket gives you the best chance" of making the American dream "a reality."
