(Undated) -- One of the G-O-P Presidential candidates is moving his focus from New Hampshire to Iowa. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina says he's opening a West Des Moines campaign office and after the next debate, plans to be in Iowa each week ahead of the Iowa Caucuses.

Scott is wrapping up a five-day campaign swing through Iowa tomorrow (Tuesday), and will back in Iowa next week for events.

The Tim Scott campaign announced it will focus on Iowa's evangelical vote to win the Iowa Republican caucus. 

The campaign will shift resources from New Hampshire to Iowa, expand audiences to complement the current voter-contact programs, and boost social-conservative paid media efforts in the Hawkeye State. The campaign currently has $1.6 million of TV reserved in Iowa going forward. More staff and resources will head to Iowa in the weeks ahead. 

“Tim Scott is all in on Iowa,” said Tim Scott for America Campaign Manager Jennifer DeCasper“As the candidate with the highest net favorables, Tim Scott is best positioned to compete on caucus day. No candidate other than Tim Scott has the resources, the foundation of support, and the message to be successful in the Hawkeye State. We’re all in on Iowa as an important first step on the road to winning the nomination.”

Tim Scott entered the third quarter with more primary cash available to spend than any other Republican presidential candidate, besides the former president. The Senator’s net favorables (+58%) in Iowa are the highest in the field today, and that number is even higher with Iowa Evangelical voters (+69%) who make up a majority of the caucus-going electorate. Tim Scott is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the foundation the campaign has built in Iowa, particularly with persuadable Evangelical voters.
