RACHEL MADDOW: Abortion is a driving force behind Democratic victories across the country right now. And the candidates onstage tonight in Miami were asked what the path forward should be for the Republican Party on this issue, as they keep getting bashed at the polls on this issue, over and over again in blue states, in red states, every time and every way, the question gets asked. Some of the candidates were quite gymnastic in avoiding specific answers to that question. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott was not one of them. He just jumped right in and said that he wants a national abortion ban.
KRISTIN WELKER: Senator Scott, I would like you to weigh in. How do you see the path forward, and what do you make of what Ambassador Haley just said? Do you see this as a consensus issue?
SEN. TIM SCOTT (R-SC): Well, I am 100% pro-life. I have a 100% pro-life voting record. I would certainly, as President of the United States, have a 15-week national limit.
MADDOW: He has stopped saying ban, now he says limit, but that’s the only adaptation that we have seen on that issue.
