SIGN UP FOR UPDATES
On every issue, Congress is failing us. I cannot sit back and watch. Now is the time to restore hope in America’s greatness. I will bring strong, conservative leadership and a positive vision for our country back to Congress.

In Washington, he fought for less bureaucracy, responsible spending and a more competitive environment for businesses and business-owners.
Prior to his time in Congress, Dennis served eight years in the Florida House of Representatives before being term limited. In the Florida House he served on various Committees and Chaired the House Committee on Insurance following the devastation of 4 successive hurricanes crossing the state of Florida in 2004.

As a successful small businessman, Dennis has been honored to use his experience to fight to clean up Washington and get our country back on the right track. A conservative Republican, Dennis supports securing our borders, providing for a strong national defense, reducing federal spending and lowering taxes so families can keep more of their hard-earned money.
