How Tim Scott Wins
Only three Republicans are capable of mounting consequential presidential candidacies, I think. One has been in the race since November, another will announce later this week.
The third is Tim Scott, who launched his campaign today.
Everyone else, from Mike Pence on down, is a prisoner of events. Unless lightning strikes Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, none has any hope of becoming the nominee.
Scott is different. He controls his own destiny, to a degree.
