2004 Senate campaign

Scott's Republican campaign was focused on Christian issues and comparing incumbent Senator Evan Bayh to Hillary Clinton and Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Scott did not receive direct support from President George W. Bush or then-candidate for governor Mitch Daniels and could raise only a very limited campaign budget to work with.

Many of his campaign dollars were spent on radio and print ads in heavily to somewhat Democratic-leaning areas such as Lake County, Fort Wayne, and the Evansville area.

After the election, one of his former campaign managers was quoted as saying that he underestimated the strength of Bayh. After the campaign, Scott returned to teaching at Butler University. He also hosts forums with other conservatives on other college campuses from time to time.

2010 election for the House of Representatives

Dr. Scott announced he will run for nomination as the Republican candidate for election to the House of Representatives from Indiana's 7th congressional district against incumbent Congressman André Carson.[4] This will be Scott's fifth attempt at election to Congress.
