Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) addressed a crowd gathered Monday at a South Carolina Tea Party conference and resolutely concluded that “the greatest minority under assault today are Christians. No doubt about it.”
Speaking between appearances by GOP presidential candidates, including former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Scott also weighed in on the 2012 race, saying that any of the remaining hopefuls would be better than President Barack Obama.
“The only thing we really have on our minds is beating Barack Obama in 2012,” Scott said, according the Patch.com. “I don’t care if it’s Santorum or Gingrich or Romney, as long as we put someone in the White House who is currently not in the White House.”
Though Scott has yet to announce his support for a particular candidate, his comments about supposed anti-Christian sentiment in the United States would appear to put him in some agreement with Gingrich.
