Introducing Our Coordinated Campaign State Field Director and Regional Field Organizers
The 2016 South Carolina Democratic Coordinated Campaign is delighted to announce the hiring of our State Field Director and Field Organizers, who will play a vital part in taking our message to every corner of the state this year.
Our State Field Director is Ernest Boston, Jr. Ernest, a Darlington native, graduated from Mayo High School for Math, Science & Technology and received a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and History from Francis Marion University. This is his second consecutive South Carolina coordinated campaign, having served as a field organizer on our 2014 effort.

He subsequently served in that capacity in Idaho, Alaska, and Maryland before returning to South Carolina to serve as campaign manager for Hyman for Congress in the 7th District. Ernest is the proud father of two sons, Taelur-Lee and Hayden-Dominic.
