Join Dan in his run for Congress to put country before party and lower healthcare costs.

Called to Serve

Dan McCready is a Marine Corps veteran, small business owner, husband, and father of four. Dan’s running for U.S. Congress as a Democrat in North Carolina’s 9th District. After his opponent’s campaign committed election fraud in last November’s election, a re-do special election is being held on September 10. Dan’s running for Congress to put country over party and lower healthcare and prescription drug costs, cut middle class taxes, and strengthen public schools.

Dan first felt called to serve our country after 9/11. Dan grew up going to Charlotte-Mecklenburg public schools and earned his Eagle Scout at Carmel Presbyterian Church. Dan felt he had been given a lot and wanted to give something back, so he joined the Marines after 9/11. He led 65 Marines in the 2007 Iraq surge. While in Iraq, Dan found another calling. His fellow service members helped him find his Christian faith that guides him today, and Dan was baptized in water from the Euphrates river. He went on to be honorably discharged as a Captain.

Dan returned home to start a family and a small business. After graduating from Harvard Business School, Dan started a solar energy business in Charlotte with another Marine. He helped build 36 solar farms throughout North Carolina that put 700 North Carolinians to work in good-paying jobs. Dan played a key role in North Carolina becoming second in the nation for solar power, and today North Carolina supports over 30,000 clean energy jobs. Dan’s commitment to creating American jobs doesn’t end with clean energy. Witnessing the loss of mom-and-pop shops to big box stores, Dan founded another company, a retailer called This Land, that sold exclusively American-made goods and supported the livelihoods of 50 American craftsmen.

Now Dan feels called to serve us again. Dan was more than happy to keep building his business and spending time with his four kids and his wife, Laura, a children’s attorney. But like you, he sees politicians who are so concerned with partisan games, they’ve forgotten who they are supposed to serve. They put partisanship before people and special interests before families. Dan’s fighting to put country over party because we deserve better.

When I built a business or served in the Marines, we never cared if you were a Democrat or a Republican. We cared about getting the job done. It’s time we had new leaders who put country over party – and got the job done for North Carolina families.

As 2019 draws to a close and I look back on the year, my emotions run the gamut. It’s been three months since our special congressional election in NC's 9th District, when for me, 27 months of campaigning came to an end. There’s no getting around it, it was a tough loss.

I gave it all I had, and many of you did too. For me, it was a calling to serve, to try to help bring us together — through the 2018 midterm election, our effort to expose election fraud, and then the 2019 re-do election.

In the end, we came just shy of flipping a deep red district that hadn't elected a Democrat since 1963. We ran into the worst parts of our broken system: gerrymandering, outside money, and the largest case of election fraud in recent American history. The corruption ran to the very top of the NC Republican Party, as I wrote about back in March (www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/03/06/i-lost-my-north-carolina-election-voters-wouldnt-stand-... ) In the end, it was insurmountable.

But as tough as it was to lose, I’m also incredibly grateful — for the chance to get to know so many people, from all walks of life, understand their struggles, and fight for them. To work with such an amazing staff. To fight alongside so many of you, including those of you who, like me, had never been part of a campaign before.

I’m proud of what we did together, and you should be too. Our volunteers knocked on 200,000 doors. That’s the largest congressional field effort people in NC can remember. We brought thousands of new people into the political process, from across the political spectrum.

We led an effort to expose election fraud that had festered for years, and made history in getting a tainted federal election overturned. We showed that the real fraud isn’t Trump’s myth of “voter fraud,” it’s election fraud. Voters weren't the villains, they were the victims.

With a message of putting country over party, we proved that Americans can rise above our divisions. In a district where voters voted for Trump by almost 12 points, we nearly won. We turned Charlotte’s longtime Republican suburbs blue, outperforming Trump’s 2016 margin by an incredible 16 points.

In the rural areas, we exceeded Democrats’ 2016 performance, in both the 2018 midterm election and the 2019 redo election, when turnout was lower. (The pundits missed that, but it’s true.) We never gave up on rural voters, and other Democrats shouldn’t either. (More of my thoughts on that here, www.nytimes.com/2019/10/14/opinion/daniel-mcready-north-carolina.html )

In the end, we lost the election. But we won along the way. And we showed how Democrats can win in 2020. If Democrats replicate our 10-point out-performance next year, we’ll pick up 35 seats in the House and five seats in the Senate, and win every battleground state.

As we close the chapter on 2019 and turn to 2020, I want you to remember: Victory postponed is not defeat. 🇺🇸

Rest up this holiday, but don’t give up. 2020 is the year to vote, to volunteer, to donate, and to fight like hell. Happy new year!

Dan McCready for Congress

Happy holidays from the McCreadys! As we head toward a new year and look back on the last one, Laura and I are so thankful for your support every step of the way. We’d be nowhere without so many of you. Also, I’ve been taking a breather from social media lately, so wanted to give you an update...

Since the election, I've been focused on winding down our campaign (with such a big operation, that's taken a few months). As you can see, I’ve also been making up lost time with the family!

A lot of you have asked me what’s next. While I won’t be a candidate in 2020, I look forward to stepping back and thinking about how to keep up our efforts to protect our democracy and get more service-oriented leaders in public office. I learned a lot from our campaign and our battle against election fraud, and I'll be looking for ways to share those lessons with others who want to make a difference.

Thank you again for being such an important part of our team these last couple of years. Laura and I wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday!
