Scott defeated Jo Hayes to win the National Party's selection for the Wairarapa electorate at the 2014 election.The late entry of Carterton mayor and former MP Ron Mark for New Zealand First turned the 2014 election into a "three-horse race" with Labour's Kieran McAnulty and Scott. In the end, Scott had a clear majority over McAnulty, with Mark slightly behind in third place. He won the Wairarapa seat again in the 2017 New Zealand general election with a reduced majority, and placed 46th on the party list.
