Legislative Team

SCACS has some very sad news to report. Robert Adams, SCACS Lobbyist passed away on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

Robert was our SCACS lobbyist for the past 13 years and was considered to be a true friend to many SCACS members. He will always be part of our SCACS family.

Robert Adams was a senior vice president with McGuireWoods Consulting. He has an extensive background in South Carolina politics and government dating back to his days as a Republican campaign consultant. Robert started his career in politics as a disciple of the late Lee Atwater, working on President George H.W. Bush’s successful 1988 campaign for president and later at the Republican National Committee.

Robert went on to run campaigns for U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond, South Carolina Governor David Beasley and South Carolina Lt. Governor Bob Peeler among others. He served in the administrations of Governor Beasley and Governor Mark Sanford, before beginning his governmental relations practice.

A great heart-felt article on Robert was written by fitnews back on January 5, 2019. If you haven’t had a chance to read this article, please do so – https://www.fitsnews.com/2019/01/05/robert-adams-laudable-legacy/?fbclid=IwAR28Mq7hCi4UncP9yA82nlO77LeynpQr7NgHEbZkO1e5vFeC1-foRE_MtFY

Robert is married to Shana Adams and has two sons, Robert Jr. and Joel. Please keep his wife Shana Adams, his boys and his entire family in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Robert was truly a great man and will be sorely missed!
