Maryland U.S. Senate candidate Dan Bongino is no ordinary Republican.

Bongino, who served in the Secret Service for over ten years, readily criticizes both parties. His worldview was influenced by conservative intellectual Thomas Sowell, who he has studied.

Endorsed by the South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservative Fund, which has a track record of picking surprise election winners, and Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, Bongino is energized to pull off an upset in the sixth least conservative state.

Besides working in the Secret Service, Bongino also worked as a police officer in New York and as a small businessman.

TheDC’s Ginni Thomas recently spoke with Bongino about his thoughts on the Republican convention in Tampa, the coming fiscal cliff, President Obama’s campaign and much more.

TheDC also reached out to the office of Democratic Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, Bongino’s opponent, for an interview. Cardin’s office has not yet scheduled an interview with TheDC’s Ginni Thomas.
