Senator Tim Scott, the pro-life Republican from South Carolina, is reportedly considering launching a presidential campaign, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Should he run, Scott would join what is likely a very crowded field that already includes former Presidential Donald Trump and Nikki Haley, the former UN ambassador who is the former governor from Scott’s home state. Other top potential candidates include Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, and others.

Jennifer DeCasper, a Scott senior adviser, told the outlet he was “excited to share his vision of hope and opportunity and hear the American people’s response.”

Scott is reportedly testing a message with Republican voters in key early states focused on optimism and unity, as some say that it’s time for the party to move on from former President Donald Trump.

Sources told the Wall Street Journal that Scott is set to travel extensively in the coming months.

People close to Scott said that a challenge would be getting his name recognition up in a race that is expected to draw several big-name Republicans, including Trump and Haley.

“He truly believes that God is great and America is great and we are provided with incredible opportunities. So I think a Ronald Reagan ‘Morning in America’ hopeful America vision is one that Tim has, lives and breathes and is really needed in our country,” said Sen. John Barrasso, GOP Senate conference chair.

Scott has a 100% pro-life voting record in the Senate and, last year, he delivered the Republican Address to the Nation following the speech by Joe Biden to Congress.

Biden has repeatedly claimed to be a “devout” Catholic” or a “faithful Catholic” but his radical pro-abortion record has so far been anything bu faithful to the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

“The President is abandoning principles he held for decades,” Scott said, noticing the contradiction between his supposed faith and his pro-abortion governing. “Now, he says your tax dollars should fund abortions. He’s laying groundwork to pack the Supreme Court.”

“This is not common ground,” he said.

Scott has challenged the notion that women, especially black women, need abortion to succeed.

“I’ll just simply say that as a guy raised by a black woman in abject poverty, I am thankful to be here as a United States senator,” he’s said.

“Did you say that ending the life of a child is good for the labor force participation rate?” Scott asked. “I’m just surprised that we find ways to weave into every facet of our lives, such an important, painful reality for so many people. To make it sound like it’s just another 0.4 percent added to our labor force participation as a result of the issue of abortion, just, to me, seems harsh.”
