Senator Tim Scott Announces He’s Engaged to be Married

Saturday, former presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) proclaimed on social media that he was now engaged.

Scott’s romantic life, or lack thereof, had generated considerable attention during his campaign.

Scott, 57, would have become the first president without a spouse in over a century had he been elected, which sparked considerable speculation.

“As a guy who is mostly an introvert and on the quiet side, having to have a conversation about the engagement is a little, you know, uncomfortable in a way, but it’s the most exciting thing I’ll do with my life besides making Jesus my Lord,” Scott said during an interview with The Washington Post

“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions and goals that I do,” he continued.

While strolling along Kiawah Island in South Carolina during a sunset, Scott proposed to his now-fiancee Mindy Noce.

Prior to a year ago, the couple began dating, according to Scott, after meeting through church and bonding over Bible study.

The entirety of Scott’s presidential campaign the year prior, his romantic status remained a matter of uncertainty.

September marked the senator’s public admission that he did, in fact, have a “special someone,” in contrast with his previous reluctance to discuss his private life.

Former President Trump received Scott’s support for the 2024 Republican nomination last week.
