Dan Innis was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 1st Congressional District of New Hampshire.[1] He lost to Frank Guinta in the Republican primary on September 9, 2014.[2]


Innis was born in Columbus, Ohio, and currently resides in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He holds a BBA from Ohio University, an M.B.A. from Miami University (Ohio), and a Ph.D. in Marketing from Ohio State University. In addition to his career in education, Innis also co-founded The Hotel Portsmouth and Ale House Inn.[3]


Below is an abbreviated outline of Innis' academic, professional and political career:[3]

  • Assistant professor of marketing - Ohio University (1991)
  • Dean of the College of Business, Public Policy, and Health - University of Maine (2002)
  • Dean of the Whittemore School of Business and Economics - University of New Hampshire (2007)


Campaign Themes


Innis listed the following four priorities on his campaign website:[4]

  • Government spending: "First, we must get our fiscal house in order. We have a spending problem in Washington and our growing national debt carries a huge cost. I believe we have a moral obligation to future generations to work together and finally get Washington spending under control."
  • Government size: "Second, I believe our federal government is too big and is found in too many places. We know the uncertainty of government policies causes businesses and families to behave cautiously, which leads to fewer opportunities for working families to get good jobs. As Congressman, I will work to responsibly shrink the size of government and help get America back to work."
  • Tax reform: "Third, I will work to reform our tax system. We need to make our individual tax rates sensible, simple, and fair. I also support cutting our corporate tax, which is currently the highest in the world. If we want to grow business at home, we have to act like we want business here."
  • Investing in the future: "Finally, we must invest in the future of our America. Smart infrastructure and education investments are critical. Without a solid transportation and communication backbone, we lose our competitive edge. In addition, our community colleges, universities, and vocational schools all play a key role in our future competitiveness and they must be made more affordable to all.
