U.S. Sen. Tim Scott today launched his first two election ads ahead of the June 10 GOP primary.
The statewide buy totals $463,326 and will last for two weeks, his campaign said.
The ads are titled "Everyday Jobs" and "Mentor," and cover his "undercover" experiences bagging groceries and washing dishes, and interacting with South Carolinians.
"That makes me a better servant," he says of the work.
In the mentor ad, he talks about learning life lessons and that his mother's love sometimes came "at the end of a switch."
Scott faces minimal opposition against Greenville resident Randall Young in the primary.
