Brittany Bernstein of National Review Online reports on one Republican presidential contender’s latest campaign spending plan.

Republican senator Tim Scott’s presidential campaign is set to spend $6.6 million on television ads to run in the early primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire, a senior Scott official tells National Review. 

In addition to the TV ads, which will run through the end of November, the campaign will also launch a six-figure radio and digital ad campaign. The buy makes Scott the only candidate to have ads placed post-Labor Day. 

“Tim Scott is the only candidate who has shown steady, upward momentum since entering the race. As he prepares to take the debate stage, it is clear he not only is the best messenger and most consistent conservative in the race, but also has the resources to win,” the official said.

In a Q2 fundraising memo last month, the Scott campaign said it would begin the next stage of the race with more than $21 million on hand after a $6.1 million fundraising haul in the second quarter. He has met the requirements to appear on the debate stage later this month, receiving more than 145,000 donations from over 53,000 unique donors across all 50 states, per the memo.

The senator has shown steady growth in the GOP primary polls since entering the race in May.  

Growing support for Scott and former New Jersey governor Chris Christie has slightly diminished former president Donald Trump’s double-digit lead over the Republican field in New Hampshire. A recent Daily Mail poll from J.L. Partners found Trump with 42 percent support in the Granite State, down from 51 percent in April. Florida governor Ron DeSantis remains in second place but has seen his support drop from 18 percent in April to 15 percent. Scott and Christie are tied with 8 percent each.
