InfoRoger Williams is the former secretary of state for the U.S. state of Texas, having served from November 2004 until his resignation effective July 1, 2007.

Williams announced on June 11 that he would leave the appointed position to "pursue other opportunities". On July 16, 2007, Williams was named chairman of the Texas Republican Victory 2008 Coordinated Campaign, which assists candidates up and down the general election ballot.Republicans again won all statewide office in 2008 and gained a seat in the United States House of Representatives but lost four seats in the Texas House of Representatives and county offices in populous Harris County.

Late in 2008, Williams said that he is forming an exploratory committee to consider a run for the United States Senate seat held by fellow Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison of Dallas, who has formed her own committee to consider a 2010 race for governor of Texas. Hutchison's term is not contested again in 2012, but she has said that she will likely resign as senator should she seek the gubernatorial nomination. Hutchison's plans would create an intraparty challenge to incumbent Governor Rick Perry. A Senate resignation would trigger a special election within six months.
