Republican Senator Tim Scott announced this Sunday that he is withdrawing from the US presidential race, stating that voters have given him a clear "not now" message.

The South Carolina lawmaker, who was seeking to become the first black Republican president, had been struggling to stand out in his party's crowded field of candidates.

At 58, he ranked sixth among Republican primary candidates and only had 2.5% of the vote, according to RealClearPolitics' average of recent major opinion polls.

«I am going to suspend my campaign. "I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear in telling me, 'Not now, Tim,'" he told Fox News' "Sunday Night in America."

Scott officially announced his run for the Republican nomination in May, after spending months visiting states considered crucial to gaining early momentum in the race.

Scott was one of five participants in the third televised Republican debate last Wednesday, in which contenders for the party's nomination debated Ukraine, China, abortion and the future of the party.

Not present was former President Donald Trump, who leads the Republican race for the White House with 58.5% of the vote, according to RealClearPolitics.

Scott added that he had no interest in being a running mate for any of the remaining candidates and did not dare to give his support to any candidate in particular.
