From 1993-1998, Inglis represented the Fourth District of South Carolina (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union and a portion of Laurens County) in the U.S. House of Representatives. After an unsuccessful challenge to U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings in 1998, Inglis rejoined the law firm of Leatherwood Walker Todd & Mann, P.C. where he practiced commercial real estate and corporate law.
