Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is running for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination and has his eyes firmly set on the ultimate goal -- ousting President Joe Biden from the White House, along with his atrocious policies that are detrimental to the security and prosperity of the United States.

In that regard, Sen. Scott released a new ad vowing to "lead the charge" on securing the nation's borders and supporting the nation's law enforcement in stark contrast to President Biden's apparent "retreat" on those critical issues, Breitbart reported.

The new ad, which began airing in Iowa on Friday, is part of a larger $8 million ad buy that was recently announced and will focus on the early-voting caucus and primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Time to end the "Biden retreat"

In the newly released 30-second ad, Sen. Scott said, "Joe Biden is out of step and out of ideas. He has law enforcement retreating from our border and our neighborhood streets, and America retreating from our deepest-held values."

"I’ll be the President who ends the Biden retreat and leads the charge for American strength. I’ll build the wall, fund our police, and defend our God-given freedoms," the conservative South Carolina senator added. "I’m Tim Scott and I approve this message because I have faith in America, and our president should too."

Massive ad buy just launched

Breitbart noted that the ad appears to be the first release following the announcement last week of a large $8 million ad buy from Sen. Scott's campaign, as reported at the time by NBC News.

The ad campaign -- which will include TV, digital, and radio spots -- will run through at least November predominately in Iowa and New Hampshire, with about $6.6 million of the total figure going to TV ads "alongside six-figure radio and digital ad placements."

NBC noted that Scott is the first GOP candidate to purchase ad time past the upcoming Labor Day weekend, which is evidence of how flush with cash -- reportedly around $21 million on hand -- his campaign currently is.

The new ad buy from the Scott campaign also coincides with a larger $40 million TV and digital advertising effort launched earlier by an affiliated political action committee, the Trust in the Mission PAC, or TIM PAC, which has blanketed the early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and Scott's own South Carolina with commercials in support of the senator's campaign.

Looking to boost poll position

Obviously, the goal of the ad campaigns is to bolster Sen. Scott's support among voters in the crucial early-voting states as well as more broadly across the nation.

Currently, according to the RealClearPolitics average of primary polls, Scott sits in sixth place nationally among all GOP candidates with around 2.9 percent support.

He is performing better among the aforementioned early states, however, as he sits in third place in Iowa with 10.2 percent support, is in fourth place in New Hampshire with 7.5 percent support, and ranks third in South Carolina with 11.3 percent support.

It will be interesting to see if this new ad and other forthcoming ads over the next few weeks will succeed in boosting Scott's support in the polls.
