U.S. Sen. Tim Scott Makes First Speech on Senate Floor

Gibbs Knotts, chairman of the College of Charleston’s political science department, was not surprised that Scott talked about his personal story, which Knotts called “very compelling.”

It’s also not surprising that Scott waited six months to take the floor.

“The Senate has a lot of norms and a lot of expectations for junior senators, who go in and defer to some of the seniority and first get to know the leaders and the rules,” Knotts said. “You saw that even with (former New York Sen.) Hillary Clinton, who came in with a pretty high profile.”
