Marlon Kimpson

  • South Carolina State Sen. Marlon Kimpson is leaving his legislative post more than a year early to take an appointment in the Biden administration. The departure makes Kimpson the latest in a string of South Carolina Democrats taking positions in the administration as the state prepares to hold the nation's first Democratic presidential nominating contest of 2024. The Charleston Democrat told The Associated Press Sunday he would step down from the Senate later this year to focus on his role on the Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations.
