U.S. Sen. Tim Scott greeted about 30 campaign supporters at Ebinport Elementary School in Rock Hill this morning.
Scott, appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley last year, is seeking the Republican nomination to fill out the remaining two years of former Sen. Jim DeMint's term. DeMint resigned in 2012 to join the Heritage Foundation.
His opponent in Tuesday's primary is retired farmer Randall Young of Travelers Rest. The winner will face one of three Democrats competing in the that party's primary: Joyce Dickerson of Columbia, Sidney Moore of Rock Hill and Harry Pavilack of Myrtle Beach.
Although many believe Scott will win handily, he said he's only focused on winning. "Today we're focused on how to bring victory not how much (of) a victory," he said.
