  Tim McGraw Recounts His Romantic Proposal to Wife Faith Hill on 25th Anniversary: 'Best Day of My Life' Tim McGraw and Faith Hill first met on tour in 1996, and are parents to three daughtersThough McGraw and Hill, both 54, are one of country music's most enduring love stories, McGraw explained in a social media video Wednesday that getting Hill to say "I do" took a little convincing.

Scott received donations from more than 82,000 donors in that quarter and has raised nearly $20 million since the beginning of this year, the news outlet reported, citing a source familiar with the campaign. This quarter came in below the $9.6 million the South Carolina Republican fundraised in the second quarter, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

In late June, Scott announced that he would be seeking reelection. He is also considered a possible 2024 GOP presidential contender, depending on whether former President Trump enters the race.

Regardless of whether Scott runs for president, his Senate seat will likely be safe from potential Democratic contenders. Cook Political Report rates his Senate seat as solidly Republican. Scott's Democratic challengers include Spartanburg County Democratic Party Chairwoman Angela Geter and state Rep. Krystle Matthews.

Even during the 2020 race, in which Democratic Senate candidate Jaime Harrison sought Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R) seat, the Democrat's competitive fundraising was no match for the Republican incumbent, who won the race by about 10 points.

The news over Scott's recent fundraising comes ahead of an Oct. 15 deadline for candidates to file their third-quarter results with the FEC.

Politico noted that Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.), who is seeking to oust Sen. Marco Rubio (R), reported that she had raised $8.4 million in the third quarter, the only candidate to report a higher quarter than Scott as of Wednesday afternoon. Rubio raised $6 million.

The Hill has reached out to Scott's campaign for comment.
