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.

Last night I congratulated Dan Bishop on his victory. Our refrain on this campaign was Country over Party. I believe that when our country succeeds, we all succeed. For me, that means offering my help to Dan Bishop as he takes over his job representing us. I wish him the best.

To everyone who gave what you could in this campaign, thank you. I am so proud of you, and you should be proud of what we did together! North Carolina's 9th District has been in Republican hands since 1963. A Democrat was never even supposed to be competitive here, and we came within an inch of winning.

Today is 9/11, and my thoughts are with my Marines. I must tell you that after serving with my platoon in Iraq, I learned not to use the word 'honor' lightly. Serving side by side with my Marines from every part of our country, that was an honor.

You all have given me a new honor. Over the last 27 months, you worked so hard. You invited me into your homes and your churches, your fish fries and campaign rallies. You let me listen to your stories and priorities. You believed in me and had my back every step of the way.

You took a conviction that we felt to change our country and you turned it into a movement to put country before party. To have shared this journey with you, to have fought to move our country forward with you, that has been my true honor.

Together we built a coalition, not based on your political party, or where you live, or the color of your skin. This was never a campaign about partisanship, this was always a campaign about values. We rallied around the idea that as Americans, we’re all in this together.

We didn't win this campaign, but that does not mean that we were wrong. And as long as there are people in power who thrive off our division, there is still work to be done.

Today, It’s OK to be disappointed. It's OK to be exhausted. We just knocked 100,000 doors in the heat! But it is not OK to give up.

Our mission to bring our country together was never a mission that could be accomplished in a single election. We may not have won this campaign, but there is no doubt in my mind that our efforts over the last 27 months moved our country forward.

Despite the odds, the people of North Carolina faced down the full force of voter suppression. When the people in power sought to silence the voters, when they stole their ballots and perpetrated the greatest election fraud in recent American history, we fought back, and we won.

We were not successful last night, but I want you to remember: victory postponed is not defeat.

So today, take a rest. But know that the mission to unite our country doesn’t end here. That mission continues. As long as this fight needs fighting, we must keep answering that call. #nc09
