|Service/branch||United States Marine Corps|
Driscoll served as an infantry officer in the Marine Corps and then volunteered for two tours of duty, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He completed US Army Ranger and Airbourne Schools at Fort Benning and the Marine Corps Winter Warfare School in Bridgeport, California. He holds an M.B.A. from Northwestern University.
Driscoll outlined his campaign platform: "*People, not government, create jobs. We must rebuild our local economy by encouraging small businesses, eliminating unnecessary regulations, and increasing exports.
- The national debt and the federal budget deficit pose a real threat to America’s future. Through inaction we can do more harm to our country than any terrorist or foreign government can.
- The United States needs a more cautious foreign policy that does not casually risk American lives. We must also preserve a strong national defense and honor the promises we’ve made to our veterans.
Driscoll ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Washington's 6th District. He and Derek Kilmer (D) advanced past the blanket primary on August 7, 2012, defeating Jesse L. Young (R), David Eichner (R), Doug Cloud (R), Stephan Andrew Brodhead (R), and Eric G. Arentz Jr. (I). They faced off again in the general election on November 6, 2012. Kilmer won.
