U.S. Sen. Tim Scott got an earful from frustrated veterans and others on Monday afternoon during a campaign trail stop in Rock Hill.
Scott, a Republican, is running in 2014 for one of two South Carolina seats in the U.S. Senate. The state’s senior senator, Lindsey Graham, is also running for re-election.
Scott’s visit to Freedom Temple Ministries in Rock Hill was one of three stops he made on Monday to speak with potential South Carolina voters. Earlier in the day, he appeared in Greenville, first at Bob Jones University and then at a “First Monday” Republican forum meeting.
His audience in Rock Hill peppered him with questions about fixing a broken education system, reducing the nation’s debt and solving the issue of tens of millions of Americans who do not have health insurance.
