New U.S. Senator Tim Scott hasn’t had much opportunity to speak at length on a national stage, and many people weren’t quite sure what to expect when he spoke at CPAC this afternoon.
As it turns out, Scott didn’t just deliver; he knocked it out of the park. And all without a teleprompter in sight!
Tim Scott's speech a personal story about car crash he got into before political red meat. This is good stuff. #CPAC
