Tim Scott’s Optimism and Faith Charm Iowa Fairgoers

From a New York Times story by Anjali Huynh headlined “Tim Scott’s Optimism and Faith Charm Iowa Fairgoers”:

Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina enjoyed on Tuesday what other candidates had missed: having the Iowa State Fair largely to himself.

He shook hands, tried barbecue and threw footballs with fairgoers — all a natural part of the retail politics of a presidential candidate seeking to gain standing in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. And he didn’t have to share the spotlight with rivals or hecklers.
