2nd District of South Carolina

As a result of population changes , the 2010 Census showed that South Carolina would be gaining an additional Congressional district, increasing our state’s representation in the United States House of Representatives to seven members.  Prior to this change, the Second Congressional District of South Carolina included portions, if not all, of Allendale, Hampton, Jasper, Beaufort, and Calhoun counties.  The new Second Congressional District in the 113th Congress is significantly smaller geographically and includes all of Lexington, Aiken and Barnwell counties, with parts of Richland and Orangeburg counties.  Although I no longer represent Hilton Head Island and other portions of the Palmetto State’s Lowcountry, I look forward to representing Aiken County in its entirety and advocating for all of the people I am proud to serve in Washington.

South Carolina is renowned for its generous hospitality and its beautiful, historic landscape. With its beginnings in colonial America, its rich history spans centuries. More Revolutionary war battlefields transverse South Carolina than anywhere else in the nation. Centuries-old gardens and historic homes are reminders of the Palmetto State's past.

Surrounding all this history is a land that is stunning in beauty and charm, a land that will kindle the imagination and satiate the curiosity. South Carolina's rich history, mild climate, food, entertainment and hospitality captivate visitors from around the world.
