About the presenter: Inglis founded and launched the national, grassroots organization Energy and Enterprise Initiative (E&EI) in July 2012. E&EI is guided by the conservative principles of free enterprise and economic growth, limited government, liberty, accountability and reasonable risk avoidance to solve our nation's energy and climate challenges. Inglis represented South Carolina's Fourth Congressional District (Greenville, Spartanburg, Union counties) for 12 years in the U.S. House of Representatives (1993-98 and 2005-10). He was first elected to Congress in 1992 after having never run for public office. He spent six years in the U.S. House and unsuccessfully challenged Democratic U.S. Senator Fritz Hollings in 1998. In the fall of 2004, he was re-elected to the open House seat he had previously held and went on to serve another six-year stint in Congress. In the midst of the financial crisis in 2010, he lost his bid for re-election. Inglis grew up in Bluffton, S.C., graduated from Duke University with a degree in political science and earned his law degree from the University of Virginia.
