Dane Eagle announces campaign for Congress
State Rep. and House Majority Leader Dane Eagle declared his candidacy today for the United States House of Representatives in Florida Congressional District 19.
“Our values, our way of life, and our President are under attack,” Eagle said in the announcement. “We deserve a Congressman who will represent us and our values, someone who will stand up and fight for our Constitution and for the good work our President is accomplishing.”
Eagle outlined his platform, stating “I’m running to secure our borders, defend the 2nd Amendment, clean up our waterways, and protect American jobs.”
Eagle also drew a contrast between Tallahassee and Washington.
“Unlike Washington, we actually get things done. We cut taxes while balancing our budget, banned sanctuary cities, protected the unborn, and tackled our water crisis head on,” he said.
Born and raised in Cape Coral, Eagle graduated with honors from Bishop Verot High School where he served as Class President and played varsity football. He received an associate degree from Florida Gulf Coast University before attending the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics.
Eagle was elected in 2012 to serve his hometown in the Florida House of Representatives and quickly distinguished himself as a highly effective legislator, passing laws to cut taxes, reduce regulations, ban sanctuary cities, honor our veterans, and keep dangerous criminals off our streets. He currently serves as the House Majority Leader, where he is responsible for leading the Republican Conference in the Florida House and ushering conservative legislation to the Governor’s desk.
Eagle has received numerous recognitions for his dedication to conservative principles and free market values, including:
* American Conservative Union, Award for Conservative Excellence and Defender of Liberty
* Florida Chamber of Commerce Honor Roll
* “A” ratings from Americans for Prosperity
* Champion of Family award from the Florida Family Council
In the private sector, Eagle is a commercial real estate broker with more than 16 years of experience.
Dane and his wife Brooke live in Cape Coral with their 2-year-old golden retriever, Hampton. In their spare time they enjoy time on the water, traveling, and appreciating the treasures of the Sunshine State.
