Committee Assignments


Russell Fry is a courageous, consistent conservative who gets things done. As State Representative for District 106 and a champion of the America First agenda, Russell is a leading voice on election integrity, growing the economy, ending human trafficking, and battling the opioid epidemic. As Chief Majority Whip, Russell was instrumental in passing the Open Carry Act (the biggest advancement in Second Amendment rights in 25 years) and the Fetal Heartbeat Bill (the strongest prolife legislation ever approved by the General Assembly). Additionally, Russell helped shepherd through the South Carolina House the Religion is Essential Act, which prevents government from closing our churches' doors. He also co-sponsored bills to expand school choice, ban vaccine passports, save women's sports, close primaries from crossover political meddling, require ID to vote via absentee ballot, and establish term limits to end career politicians. Before being elected to guard the faith, families, and freedom of his fellow citizens, Russell practiced law along the Grand Strand. He worked his way through Charleston School of Law where he served as president of the Student Bar Association, helped the school achieve its American Bar Association accreditation, and even received the prestigious Civility Award. An Eagle Scout and Socastee High School alumnus, Russell graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in political science and a minor in business administration. Born in Surfside Beach, Russell's parents taught him from an early age that with hard work and a good education, the American Dream is within reach. He experienced that firsthand as a child-living in a cinderblock home with no heat or air-conditioning-as his parents struggled from paycheck to paycheck, saving when they could and tightening their belts when they had to. Russell understands the things that matter most to us are never guaranteed-they're earned. That's why he'll never take your support for granted and is committed to earning your vote. Russell Fry is a loving husband, dedicated father, and conservative leader. He has spent his adult life championing America First causes. Russell, wife Bronwen, and their young son James are members of Palmetto Shores Church. The Fry family lives in Murrells Inlet with their chocolate lab, Jasper.
