I’m Dave Dodson, a self-made entrepreneur who grew up in the Rocky Mountain West and went out into the world to grow companies and create jobs. I came home to the place I’ve loved all my life, and found it hurting economically and neglected by a senator who forgot why he was sent to Washington.
I’m running for the U.S. Senate in 2018 as an Independent. I’m a Reagan Republican, and I’m looking forward to making my case with the entire state in the general election.
My wife Wendy is the person that makes me laugh at life and at myself. She’s also the person who first encouraged me to consider seeking to serve as Wyoming’s senator.
I’m the very proud father of three grown daughters—Rachel, Hannah, and Caroline. As many of you know, having kids makes you think a lot about the future—of our nation, of our state, of our community.
That’s unacceptable, and it makes me mad. We’ve had lousy economic leadership from John Barrasso, and I intend to give everything I’ve got to do something about it.
It starts with understanding that industries, like energy and technology, need to grow and thrive, and it takes national connections and leadership to get those industries to invest in our great state of Wyoming. I will work side by side with our next governor to become Wyoming’s #1 salesperson. As your senator, I’m going to fight to bring jobs here.
Today's economy works against middle class and working families, and in favor of big-money special interests and the wealthiest among us. I promise Wyomingites to give every ounce of my energy and effort to change it, because it’s not the America I want for my children.
We’re about to hand to our children a nation-choking level of debt because our politicians thought it was okay to give the largest tax cut in history to the top 1% of Americans while blowing out spending. They’re willing to mortgage our children’s future if it means getting re-elected. I'm not.
It’s time to dump party-first politicians who try to make Americans believe that one half of us hates the other half of us. That’s why I’m running as an independent candidate.
Our politicians have stopped working for the voters and instead only care about their donors. They’ve quit worrying about the communities they represent and instead worry only about their careers. They’re willing to sow distrust and hatred among Americans to ensure they get re-elected.
