Trump’s VP prospect Tim Scott sets summer wedding date after GOP convention

Sen.
Tim
Scott
(R-S.C.),
a
top
vice-presidential
prospect
for
Donald
Trump,
has
planned
an
early
August
wedding
to
his
fiancée
Mindy
Noce,
just
weeks
after
the
Republican
National
Convention
during
a
traditional
lull
in
the
campaign
season.

Scott,
58,
proposed
to
Noce
in
January
just
days
before
the
New
Hampshire
primary,
an
event
that
Trump,
the
presumptive
Republican
nominee,
repeatedly
celebrated
as
he
campaigned
in
the
state.
Scott
and
Noce
plan
to
marry
in
South
Carolina,
Scott
spokesman
Nathan
Brand
confirmed
Thursday.

Scott
has
since
become
one
of
a
handful
of
people
Trump
has
discussed
privately
as
a
potential
running
mate,
according
to
advisers
to
Trump
who
spoke
on
the
condition
of
anonymity
to
describe
the
process.
Trump
is
not
expected
to
make
a
final
decision
for
weeks
or
months.

The
wedding
is
scheduled
for
a
time
when
much
of
the
country
is
on
vacation
or
distracted
by
the
Summer
Olympics.
Democrats
are
planning
their
nominating
convention
in
Chicago
from
Aug.
19-22,
about
a
month
after
Republicans
gather
in
Milwaukee
from
July
15-18.

Noce,
a
Charleston
area
interior
designer
and
mother
of
three
who
was
previously
married,
was
introduced
to
Scott
at
church
in
South
Carolina
more
than
a
year
ago.
Scott
was
previously
engaged
more
than
two
decades
ago,
but
never
married.

“In
our
first
conversation
that
went
about
an
hour
and
a
half
or
two,
we
ended
up
deciding
to
do
a
Bible
study
together,”
Scott

said
in
Januar
y
about
his
courtship
with
Noce.
Scott
said
he
had
approached
her
parents
about
two
weeks
before
Christmas
to
ask
for
their
blessing.

Scott
ran
against
Trump
for
the
Republican
nomination
last
year,
dropping
out
Nov.
13
after
he
failed
to
gain
traction
in
Iowa.
He
endorsed
Trump
in
January,
before
the
New
Hampshire
primary.

Trump
celebrated
the
engagement
news
at
the
time,
calling
it
“the
biggest
story
out
there”
and
repeatedly
congratulating
Scott
in
public
at
his
events.

“We
never
thought
this
would
happen,”
Trump
joked
at
the
time.
“What’s
going
on?”
