CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Sen. Tim Scott endorses Marco Rubio for President of the United States in a video released Monday.
"2016 may be the important election," Scott says in the video. "I'm putting my confidence and my trust in Marco Rubio."
Rubio polled third in the Iowa caucuses Monday night, but was tightening the gap between he and Trump, with a one-percent difference between the two.
The presidential hopeful celebrated his strong showing with supporters.
"They told me I need to wait my turn, that I need to wait in line. But tonight, tonight here in Iowa, the people of this great state sent a very clear message: after seven years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back. This is not a time for waiting," Rubio said Monday night.
