Battle-Tested, Pennsylvania True


Dave McCormick was born in Pittsburgh and raised in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, where he spent the summers baling hay and trimming Christmas trees on his family and neighboring farms. During his high school years, he put the strength he learned working on the farm to work on the mat and on the football field as a varsity wrestler and linebacker at Bloomsburg High School.

Dave was appointed to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. While at West Point, Dave was a four-time letterman on the Army wrestling team and a co-captain his senior year.


Upon receiving his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant, Dave attended Airborne School and Ranger School, where he graduated with honors at one of the toughest schools in the Army. Dave was assigned to the Army’s All-American 82nd Airborne Division, where he was in the first wave of American troops sent into Iraq during the Persian Gulf War in 1991. His unit was tasked with clearing minefields and destroying enemy munitions, and he was awarded the Bronze Star.


After receiving his Ph.D. in international affairs from Princeton in 1996, Dave came home to Pittsburgh, where he joined and worked his way up to lead a cutting-edge technology company called FreeMarkets, which created 600 jobs in Pittsburgh and played an important role in Pittsburgh’s renaissance. Still reeling from the death of the steel industry, Pittsburgh proved that anything is possible if you refuse to give up. Dave went on to apply this lesson throughout his business career.


In 2005, Dave continued his service to our country as Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security, before going on to be named Deputy National Security Adviser for International Economic Policy. From 2007-2009, Dave served as Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs. As one of our country’s top negotiators, Dave stood up for the United States by going toe-to-toe with our adversaries, implementing tough sanctions and regulations necessary to protect America’s interests.


After spending 13 years serving our country as a combat soldier and government official, this favorite son of Bloomsburg went on to join and eventually lead Bridgewater Associates, one of the most successful investment management companies in the world, where he eventually became Co-CEO and then sole Chief Executive Officer in 2020. During his time at Bridgewater, the business more than doubled in size, and David led the firm in its transition from a founder-led boutique to professionally managed institution.


Service has remained a way of life for Dave. He has served as a trustee for the United Service Organizations (USO), the Alexander Hamilton Society, and Carnegie Mellon University. Dave and his wife Dina also support a wide range of charitable causes.

Pennsylvania has a history of being a leader—and showing the rest of the country the way forward. Many Pennsylvanians have told Dave it’s time for the Keystone State to be a leader again to restore the promise of the American Dream.  Many Pennsylvanians believe Dave McCormick is the battle-tested, Pennsylvania true, fighter we need to get the job done.

A message from Dave McCormick

Thank you. What an honor it has been to campaign across this commonwealth, to meet thousands of Pennsylvanians and to be the voice of so many of you in this great campaign.

I had the best partner a guy could ever have this whole time –  She was my rock, my inspiration, a source of endless support. Dina, thank you.

I am so proud of what we accomplished and the campaign we ran. We saw historic turnout in the Republican primary, and I am grateful to the nearly 419,000 Pennsylvanians who placed their trust in me.

Along the way I met thousands of my fellow Pennsylvanians, who shared their hopes and concerns. I rekindled old friendships while starting many new ones. I was blessed to have the best volunteer force this election cycle, an incredible group of financial supporters, and the opportunity to work alongside the best campaign team. To each of you I am grateful: for your hard work, your friendship, your trust.

And we came so close to our goal. By the slimmest of margins, we trailed on election night, with thousands of votes left to count. With so much at stake, and a margin that was razor thin, we spent the last 17 days making sure every Republican vote is counted to ensure a result that reflects the will of Pennsylvania voters.

But it is now clear to me, with the recount largely complete, that we have a nominee. Today I called Mehmet Oz to congratulate him on his victory, and told him I will do my part to help unite Pennsylvanians behind his candidacy, so we defeat John Fetterman in the fall, and take back the Senate in 2023.

The good news now is Dina gets a lot more of me. The bad news is Democrats get a lot more of me too.

I'm not going anywhere.

This is my home. It’s where I was raised. It launched my dreams. And I'm going to help make sure that Pennsylvania has strong leadership in the years to come.

We'll have more to say about that in the future, but tonight is about coming together.

I learned a lot about the people of Pennsylvania in this campaign: you have limitless faith, you love your families and communities, and no matter how many times you get knocked down, you always get back up.

This campaign really came to a culmination on the day before the election. It was then that we had a rally in my hometown, at Bloomsburg High School. Everything that is great about Pennsylvania and America, I saw present in that high school atrium that day – the spirit of optimism and resilience, a belief in the American Dream, a sense of community where we come together for the greater good.

In that moment, it was all brought full circle for me: from everything Pennsylvania had given to me…to everything I am prepared to give back to my commonwealth and my country.

And even though I won’t be your nominee, I remain committed to giving back to Pennsylvania and to the United States of America.

America is in the midst of turbulent times, but with the right leadership, and the right policies, we can get this country on track again. We can create jobs and opportunity again. We can reassert America’s role in the world again.

That’s the future I am optimistic we can build, in a country whose best days lie ahead. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless Pennsylvania.
