Daniel MacArthur Gade (born February 7, 1975, age 45) is a United States combat veteran who ran as a Republican for U.S. Senate from the state of Virginia in the 2020 Senate elections to unseat the Deep stater Mark Warner.

Military service

Gade served in the United States Army for over twenty years since the age of seventeen,[1] having been deployed to Iraq in 2004 to lead a unit on combat missions. After being wounded twice, Gade's right leg had to be amputated, later enduring over forty surgeries, and would have to face a lifelong disability. He was awarded with the Bronze Star, the Legion of Merit, in addition to two Purple Hearts. In addition, Gade obtained the rank of lieutenant colonel.

EEOC nomination

President Donald Trump at one point considered Gade to be nominated to a commissioner spot on the EEOC for a five-year term,[2] though Gade ultimately withdrew himself from consideration amid a ‘political mess’.[3]

2020 Senate campaign

It was announced in November 2019[4] that Gade had initiated his Senate bid a month prior for the 2020 U.S. Senate election in Virginia to challenge Democrat Mark Warner, a Deep stater who is the co-chair of the corrupt SSCI.

Republican primary

Gade won the Republican nomination with two-thirds of the vote to face Warner in the general election.[5]

General election

Gade lost the general election to Warner by eleven points,[6] with his defeat partially due to the affluent counties surrounding Washington, D.C. in the state's 10th congressional district becoming heavily Democrat-favoring.
