Neal Dunn Announces He’s Running for a Fifth Term in Congress

U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., announced this week that he is running for a fifth term in the U.S. House.

“My wife and I prayed a lot about this decision. What it ultimately came down to is our grandkids. I look at them and ask what kind of country, and world, do we want to leave for them? Right now, the future looks dicey. Russia is on the march. China is on the march, & we are over $33 trillion in debt, spending money foolishly, and our elite institutions are increasingly hostile to our traditional values,” Dunn said.

“Unlike many in Washington, I am not a career politician. I had a successful career in the Army and private sector. The reason I’m running is to ensure we have strong, no-nonsense conservative leaders in Congress who won’t back down to the Chinese Communist Party, Joe Biden, and the radical left. I’ve proven that I can both stand strong against socialist agendas in Congress and deliver results for Northwest Florida,” he added.

“It’s a tough time in America, but I believe even in times like these, there is a light that shines through to the strong. We saw that light after Hurricane Michael & we seized it! When Hurricane Michael hit, our communities were devastated. But in the days, weeks, months, and years after, we came together and worked as friends and neighbors to help rebuild. We can do the same for the victims of Hurricane Idalia! I worked hard to secure millions in recovery funding and my team spent long days to be there for our district in a time of need. We found new businesses to fill in where the old businesses faltered. We will do so again! In darkness there was still light for Florida’s Panhandle, and I believe that’s true for America, too,” Dunn said in conclusion.

Dunn currently represents all of Holmes, Jackson, Bay, Washington, Calhoun, Gulf, Liberty, Franklin, Liberty, Gadsden, Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Taylor and Madison Counties and parts of Walton and Lafayette Counties.

On paper, the district can be competitive with 41 percent Republicans and 40 percent Democrats. However, the district is solidly conservative. In 2020, Republican Donald Trump took 55 percent of the district while Democratic candidate Joe Biden pulled 44 percent. So far, Dunn has not drawn any opposition.
