Dan Sebring (b. June 27, 1957, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a 2014 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 4th Congressional District of Wisconsin. He previously ran for the office in 2012 and 2010 but lost to incumbent Gwen Moore both times.[1]


At 18, Sebring joined the local fire department. He has also worked as an assembly line worker, school bus driver, carpenter, and auto mechanic, among other jobs, and served in the U.S. Navy. Sebring now owns and operates an auto repair shop.[2]

He is currently the 1st Vice Chairman of the Republican Party of Milwaukee County’s Milwaukee–South Branch. He is also a member of the Republican Party of Wisconsin 4th District Executive Committee and he is part of the National Hispanic Republican Assembly.[3]


Sebring listed some of his campaign issues on his website: "Pass the three pending free trade agreements (FTAs). Implementing FTAs with Colombia, South Korea, and Panama would prevent the loss of 380,000 jobs to our foreign competitors and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs in the United States. The U.S.-South Korea FTA alone has the potential to create as many as 280,000 new jobs.

Complete export control reforms. The administration can enact nearly all of its proposed export control changes without legislation. Complete this task now, and U.S. businesses can expand exports and create good-paying jobs without jeopardizing national security. One study found that modernizing U.S. export controls could create as many as 340,000 new jobs.

Spur American exports to Asia and Europe. Swiftly complete a Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement to expand U.S. exports to rapidly growing Asian economies. Initiate talks with the European Union to eliminate all tariffs on goods trade as a first step toward a broader free trade pact with our largest commercial partner.

Protect intellectual property. IP-intensive industries support 19 million American jobs. Congress can take immediate steps to safeguard these jobs and create new ones by passing a patent reform bill as well as legislation to shut down foreign rogue websites. These websites are stealing sales from American companies by violating trademarks and copyrights.[4]

In order to maintain a strong National Defense we need to scale back foreign aid and entanglements, bring American troops home from the Middle East as soon as possible, and reduce involvement in military affairs abroad. While I am not advocating “isolationism”, we have far too many problems here at home that should take priority."[5]
