RYE, N.H. – South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is pointing fingers at his "opponents" in the race for the Republican presidential nomination for recent stories spotlighting his unmarried status.
He also suggested that the media headlines were an effort to overshadow his "rise in the polls."
Scott – who if elected president would be the first bachelor in the White House in more than a century – was the subject of a recent article by Axios, which suggested some Republican donors are concerned about him being unmarried.
Fox News Digital asked the 57-year-old senator about the recent headlines as Scott, who was accompanied by New Hampshire GOP Gov. Chris Sununu, visited Lago's Ice Cream in Rye on Thursday.
