Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) “had an optimistic tone about Washington’s progress on police reform discussions, emphasizing why he’s the right person to lead the charge on his side of the aisle,” Politico reports.
Said Scott: “I personally understand the pain of being stopped 18 times driving while Black. I also have seen the beauty of when officers go door-to-door with me on Christmas morning to deliver presents to kids in the most underserved communities. So I think I bring an equilibrium to the conversation.”
Scott added that a “significant number” of his Republican colleagues are willing to support his efforts to craft police reform legislation.Save to Favorites
