Asbury Churchwell Latimer (July 31, 1851 – February 20, 1908) was a United States Representative and Senator from South Carolina. Born near Lowndesville, South Carolina, he attended the common schools, engaged in agricultural pursuits, and in 1880 moved to Belton, South Carolina and devoted his time to farming.

Latimer was elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-third and to the four succeeding Congresses (March 4, 1893 - March 3, 1903). He did not seek renomination in 1902, having become a candidate for US Senator. He was elected to the U.S. Senate and served from March 4, 1903, until his death in 1908.

During his service in the Senate, he was appointed in 1907 a member of the United States Immigration Commission.

He died of peritonitis in Washington, D.C. in 1908; interment was in Belton Cemetery, Belton, South Carolina.
