Dave McCormick has a battle plan for America’s renewal — and he’s ready to bring it and his leadership to the United States Senate on behalf of Pennsylvania.
He’s a West Point graduate, combat veteran and Bronze star recipient. He’s a Pennsylvania job creator and a business leader. He’s a national security expert and a strong and experienced voice for how to overcome the threat from China. And, most important, he is a devoted husband and father of six bright young women for whom he wants to preserve the American dream.
He was deployed to the Middle East during the First Gulf War and received the Bronze Star for his service in Iraq before retiring as a Captain.
After the Army, Dave earned his Ph.D. in international relations from Princeton University before moving to Pittsburgh to start a career in business. He worked his way up to become the CEO of FreeMarkets, a successful tech startup that employed hundreds in Western Pennsylvania.
In 2005, Dave was called to service again, this time in the highest levels of government, including as Under Secretary of Treasury and as Deputy National Security Advisor.
Following the administration, Dave joined Bridgewater Associates, one of the largest, most successful investment firms in the world. He served as CEO until he resigned to run for Senate in Pennsylvania in 2022.
