Kevin Bishop

Candidate for U.S. Congress (SC-03)

Kevin has compiled a long and distinguished career in public service. He is uniquely prepared to serve as our Representative from the Third Congressional District.

Kevin has spent the bulk of his career with Senator Lindsey Graham. He joined Lindsey Graham’s staff in 1997 when Graham represented South Carolina’s Third Congressional District in Washington. He moved back to South Carolina in 1999 and worked on Graham’s 2002 Senate campaign. Kevin continued to serve as Graham’s Communications Director from 2003 until his retirement from the United States Senate in February 2024.

During his time as a top staffer to Graham, Kevin has had a front row seat to history and been part of many conservative victories. He played an active role in the Senate confirmations of Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and Chief Justice John Roberts. Kevin will bring unique, first-hand insight into the situation at the US-Mexico border. He has toured and discussed the situation with the U.S. Border Patrol at the Yuma (AZ), Tucson (AZ), and Del Rio (TX) sectors of the border.

In 2016, Kevin toured and broke bread with the residents of Kfar Aza, a kibbutz in southern Israel. On October 7, 2023, this would become the scene of unspeakable atrocities and violence against innocent Israelis by the Hamas terrorist organization. As a Representative, Kevin will be one of the strongest supporters of Israel in the U.S. House of Representatives. Unlike President Biden and some Democrats in Congress, Kevin supports the Israeli government taking steps to eradicate the threat posed by Hamas or other affiliated terrorist groups. Kevin also understands and appreciates the important role Israel has played in helping disrupt and prevent terrorist attacks against Americans and other peace-loving peoples. Israel is a very close ally and friend. Kevin will also work to cut funding to higher education institutions which promote anti-Semitism on campus.
