Dan was a great Campaign Manager in my 2012 Senate campaign, and helped us win by 21 points. He’s a a top-notch strategist who understands federal, state and local issues. He is great to work with and has positive relationships with his colleagues, staff and stakeholders. He understands all the different parts of a campaign and how they need to work together for victory. Dan’s leadership on my team was invaluable.
— U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
 
 
It was a race almost no one thought we would win, with Republicans looking unstoppable both in Michigan and nationally. As Manager, Dan always kept his eye on the ball and could be counted on for steady, clear advice and strategy. He kept the campaign firing on all cylinders right to the end. Without question he’s a big reason why we shocked everyone and won in that tough cycle.
— U.S. Senator Gary Peters (D-MI)
