Regina Stewart Hampton is a native of Little Rock, Arkansas and a graduate from Hall High School Little Rock. She earned a degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in Criminal Justice and a minor in Psychology.

In 2014, as the Democratic nominee for State Auditor, she ran stronger on the ticket than most of the other Democratic nominees running that year. She carried 18 counties as well as became the first African-American woman nominated by the Democratic Party for statewide office making history. Ironically, her husband, Dr. R.J. Hampton was first African-American to run for statewide office, when he ran for Governor in 1970. Though Hampton lost her bid, she built a very effective statewide organization and she has remained involved assisting other Democrats who have run for office, since. She also is a Soror of our current Vice President, Kamala Harris. Her support of fellow Sorors has been effective in seeing other sisters of AKA elected to office in Arkansas since her bid for statewide office.

Her work experiences include employment at the Arkansas Department of Health Vital Records, Shorter College, Baptist Medical Center and Baptist Health Schools of Nursing. Her most recent employment is with the Auditor of State office. She began serving under the administration of the Honorable Jim Wood (2001-2008) and currently serves under the administration of the Honorable Charlie Daniels.  

Regina’s community services activities and business professional include work with Girl Scouts of America, board member of College Station Community Development, Inc., board member of Delta Transitional Inc., member of Deborah Grand Chapter, Order of Eastern Star, member of Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND), member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Inc., Beta Pi Omega Sorority and Regina is a University of Arkansas at Little Rock Alumnus. Regina’s business achievements includes co-owner Hampton Properties, Inc., Hampton Expo and Emporium, Inc., Regina’s Bed and Breakfast, Inc., co-founder of Education Consortia, Inc., and co-founder of The Church of the Good Samaritan, Inc.

Regina is currently married to Rev. Dr. R.J. Hampton who was twice president of Shorter College, North Little Rock, AR (1976-1980). As a retired state employee, Mr. Hampton worked in Adult Education under the late Dr. Luther Black (1971-1976) and under the administration of the Honorable Charlie Daniels as Land Commissioner and Secretary of State as Director of Special Projects.
