Ralph Norman is a life-long resident of South Carolina. After graduating from Presbyterian College in 1975, he spent his private sector career with the property and construction company that his father founded, and helped grow that business into one of the foremost commercial real estate development firms in the region.
As a public servant, Ralph spent a total of 11 years in the South Carolina Statehouse before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017. In both Columbia and Washington, he’s earned a reputation as a strong, pro-family conservative who values fiscal responsibility and individual liberty.
If you ask Ralph, however, he’ll tell you none of those accomplishments hold a candle to what he values most: his faith and his family. He and his wife, Elaine, have been married for over 45 years, and together they have four married children and 17 grandchildren. Ralph and Elaine are members of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill.
