State Rep. Dan Hamilton (R-Greenville) formally announced that he will seek the Republican nomination for Congress for District 4.  Trey Gowdy, who announced earlier this year that he will not seek re-election at the end of his term, currently represents District 4. 

Hamilton’s announcement took place at the J. Verne Smith Park on Lake Robinson in northern Greenville.  Republican S.C. House Majority Leader, Bruce Bannister introduced Hamilton and was joined by a large crowd of more that 225.

“I’m a father, a businessman, and a conservative,” Hamilton said.  “I’ll focus on reducing government spending, ending burdensome regulations, and providing our troops with the support they need.”

 “We need more common sense conservatives in Washington,” Hamilton said.  “Our debt and deficits are out of control, and it’s not only the fault of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.  I’ll stand up to the big-spenders in Washington whether they’re Republicans or Democrats.”

Hamilton told the crowd that he is a strong proponent of citizen representation and pledged to serve no more than eight years if elected. 

Hamilton is a successful small businessman in the Upstate where he founded one of the largest and fastest growing real estate brokerages in the region.  In 2008, Hamilton was elected State Representative of South Carolina’s 20th District where he serves on the Labor, Commerce, and Industry Committee and the Rules Committee.  Hamilton grew up Taylors and resides in Greenville. He is married to his college sweetheart, Kelly, a Registered Nurse.  They have four children.
