Tim Scott's mic fails as he launches 2024 presidential campaign

Tim Scott was set to announce his presidential campaign on Monday, when a technical glitch left the 57-year-old senator in silence

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott launches his presidential bid, offering an optimistic message he hopes can contrast with the two figures who have used political combativeness to dominate the early GOP primary field: Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

'Joe Biden and the radical left are attacking every rung of the ladder that helped me climb. And that is why I am announcing today that I am running for president of the United States of America,' Scott told a cheering crowd at Charleston Southern University in his home state of South Carolina. 'Our nation, our values, and our people are strong, but our president is weak,' he added. At that point, the sound cut out.
