Just days after his participation in the GOP debate and introducing his girlfriend to the public, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has decided to suspend his presidential campaign. Despite early fundraising momentum, Scott’s decision to withdraw comes as no surprise to many within the political sphere.

As the Republican field adjusts to Scott’s departure, former President Trump remains the frontrunner, despite his countless indictments from New York to Georgia to Florida, and refusing to participate in any of the Republican debates.

Scott’s announcement underscores the Trump-dominated nature of the GOP race, where factors such as polling dynamics, campaign strategies, and unexpected events appear to have no impact on Trump being the frontrunner.
