The State: Tim Scott picks Byars, Habib to run his SC campaign
05 . 22 . 23
Sen. Tim Scott’s presidential campaign is tapping two longtime South Carolina political consultants to run his 2024 operations in the Palmetto State. Political consultants Luke Byars and his wife, Drea, and Phillip Habib will run the senator’s South Carolina campaign leadership team.
“Winning campaigns today need a powerful message, a strong messenger and plenty of momentum,” the three said in a joint statement. “Thankfully, Tim Scott has all three. This is personal for us. We believe in Tim, and no one will work harder than us to make sure he’s our next president.” Luke Byars, a senior partner at strategy firm First Tuesday Strategies who served as a former South Carolina Republican Party executive director, will be the Scott campaign’s senior adviser and general consultant.
