Jack Bergman BIO

Growing up in the Midwest, Jack Bergman’s parents instilled in him the values that drive the American Dream- If you work hard, never quit, and strive for excellence, you will find success. Those values are what guided him to the rank of Lt. General in the United States Marine Corps, empowered him to successfully own and operate a small business, and allowed him to enjoy a 22-year career as a commercial airline pilot.

Jack proudly represents the First District of Michigan. The boundaries contain the entire Upper Peninsula and all of northern lower Peninsula. Altogether, the district makes up about 44% of the land mass of the state of Michigan. The Bergman family roots in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula stretch back to the late 1800’s where his ancestors worked as iron miners. Serving his country in uniform for 40 years, Jack has spent time all around the United States – and world. Nearly three decades ago, Jack and his wife Cindy settled in Watersmeet, on the western edge of Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula.

Jack is a grandfather to ten grandchildren. This has always been one of the largest factors in his service in Congress. When Jack sees what is happening in Washington, he knows that we are not doing our best at leaving our children and grandchildren a better place. From his business to his distinguished military career, and now in Congress – Jack Bergman does not accept the status-quo as an acceptable path forward. Jack is driven by his commitment to serving others. While in the military, he launched two successful startup businesses in the medical equipment field, maintaining an obligation to both his nation and his customers simultaneously. As an entrepreneurial leader focused on mission accomplishment and customer satisfaction, Jack knows how to get things done.

Hard work and commitment made the United States the most exceptional nation in the world. Those are the principles that have guided Jack’s life, and are the principles that he is bringing to Washington. He believes what most Michiganders believe- Americans know how to live their lives better than politicians or bureaucrats do. Jack’s life has been dedicated to service and defending the Constitution. He is the highest ranking combat Veteran to have ever served in the U.S. House. He is shaking up the status quo in both Congress and will continue defending the United States from those who want to weaken it, both domestically and abroad.

Senator John Damoose

Senator John Damoose

U.S. Michigan’s 37th Senate District

4-year term. Limited to 2 terms. (expire on 1-1-2027)
John Damoose BIO

Upon graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Political Science in 1994, John secured a job at the Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach, Virginia. While there, he learned his craft working on the 700 Club television program, and ultimately wrote and produced a 2 hour documentary on the story of America called “Victory in Spite of All Terror” which marked the beginning of a career that would involve interviewing thousands of leaders from all walks of life and telling the story of the American character to millions of people through television special and online video.


In 1997, John co-authored a book with Dr. Bill Bright, the Founder and President of Campus Crusade for Christ. The book explored the founding principles of the United States and was ultimately hand-delivered to every member of the United States Congress.

After working with his family to launch several non-profit organizations and rekindle the venerated Religious Heritage of America Foundation, John and his father started 45 North Productions in the year 2000, with the expressed purpose of telling the stories of character, sacrifice and dedication that made America a great nation. In the course of the next twenty years, this pursuit would lead John to co-author and produce nine national television specials on all-American themes like Arlington National Cemetery, the Medal of Honor, Military Families, NASA, and many others. John and his father were contracted by the Department of Defense to produce the official documentary celebrating the opening of the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial, both of th em having been in the very corridor of the Pentagon when the plane struck 7 years earlier.

​Throughout the years, 45 North Productions has produced dozens of high-profile tribute videos for leaders from all walks of life, and interviewed hundreds of the nation’s top political, military and corporate leaders. From each of them – including two Presidents, numerous Secretaries of Defense and Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs, and dozens of U.S. Senators and Representatives, he learned lessons about leadership, government, and solid conservative principles that he now hopes to apply to the State Legislature in Michigan.

He wrote, directed and produced the three-part New American Road Series, commissioned by Ford Motor Company to tell the powerful story of what many believe is the quintessential American industry. For nearly 25 years, John has worked closely as an associate with the organization that runs the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. And in recent years, John has served as the Executive Director of Building America’s Tomorrow – an organization that launched a series of initiatives dedicated to rebuilding America’s manufacturing workforce and encouraging Career and Technical Education programs.

​John and his wife Margo, the current Director of the Harbor Springs DDA and Member of the Harbor Springs School Board, reside in Harbor Springs, MI with their 4 children and are committed Christian believers whose top priorities in this life are to pour themselves into raising their children and help restore American society and the solid principles upon which we were founded.
