Big Change, Real Reform, Right Now.


Phil Noble is recognized globally as one of the leading experts on uses of the Internet in the civic sector – in politics, media, government and public affairs. His first contact with politics was handing out brochures at 9 years old for JFK’s 1960 presidential campaign – and has since been involved in civic affairs in the US and in 45 countries.

He received a BS degree from Birmingham-Southern College in 1974 after undergraduate study at Cambridge University. He started Phil Noble and Associates, a political and public affairs consulting firm involved in over 350 corporate, public affairs projects and political campaigns in the 40 states and 35 countries.

Noble founded PoliticsOnline, the premier global company providing news, tools and strategies for the civic sector used in over 50 countries. He has authored two books including the first-ever Guide to the Internet and Politics and numerous articles on the Internet, media, communications and politics for U.S. and international publications.

A frequent commentator for various media, he is a lecturer for university, corporate and public policy courses around the world. Noble formerly taught an annual course on Campaigns, Democracies and the Internet at the University of Amsterdam and was a past Resident Fellow of the Institute of Politics of the John F. Kennedy School of Government of Harvard. He serves on various advisory and editorial boards at ten other colleges and universities in the US and worldwide.

A former President of the South Carolina New Democrats, Phil founded the Palmetto Project and One Laptop Per Child SC. He lives in Charleston, South Carolina with his wife Nancy and has two children.


My name is Phil Noble and I’m running for Governor because I believe that we need big change and real reform – right now.

South Carolina is an amazing state and we can do great things – because we always have.

But today, we have a system of plantation politics and our legislature and state government have become infected by the disease of corruption – it’s contagious and spreading. It’s a disease that has kept us from having the things that all South Carolinians deserve:

• Great schools for our kids
• Honest utility rates
• Safe roads
• Good jobs that provide security for our families

South Carolinians are tired of empty promises and a pay-to-play politics where utilities and other lobbyists win, and we lose.

We need to work together to build a South Carolina that we are all proud of… and works for everyone.

This is what my campaign is all about… and we need your help to make it happen.

Give me your email and I’ll be keeping you up to date with the campaign, and look forward to hearing your thoughts over the coming weeks and months.

Together, we can do great things for our state and our families.

Thank you for your support!
