DescriptionDarlington native Robert Williams, a U.S. Army veteran who returned from more than a year’s active duty service in Iraq last October, became the first candidate to enter the race to succeed state Rep. Jesse Hines, D-Lamar, in the District 62 S.C. House race Tuesday.


Robert Williams is a U.S. Army veteran who has recently returned from duty in Iraq.

Williams, founder and executive director of Fatherhood and Families Engagement, will run in the June Democratic primary. “My roots go back over 75 years in this county and I have spent the bulk of my 40 years in Darlington, raising my own sons and working to strengthen my community and the people who live in it,” Williams said during a press conference in front of the Darlington County Courthouse, surrounded by a gathering of family and supporters braving a cold January wind.

“Today marks a new beginning, a beginning filled with bright possibilities,” said Williams, a husband and father of three.
