Doug Patton Biography

Doug Patton describes himself as a recovering political speechwriter who agrees with himself more often than not. Over the years, he has served as a press secretary, speechwriter, communications director, campaign manager and/or policy advisor for conservative candidates, elected officials and public policy organizations at the federal, state and local level.

Since he began writing his weekly column of sage political analysis in 2001, Doug has been published in a diverse variety of publications around the country and across the web. His work has been featured coast to coast in newspapers such as the Washington Times, the Omaha World-Herald and the Tampa Tribune, on such Internet web sites as Human Events Online and, and on national radio shows, including those of Sean Hannity, Mike Gallagher, and Quinn and Rose, to name just a few.

Here is what others have to say about Doug Patton’s work:
"In times like these, we need more unapologetic and principled conservative voices such as Doug Patton—a bold and articulate writer. You should include him on your list of must reads." —David Limbaugh, syndicated columnist and bestselling author

"Doug Patton writes with a keen eye for Americanism. I read him often because he connects well-known incidents of history to current events, giving relevance and clarity to changing times. We connect because Doug is a full spectrum constitutional conservative and an advocate for American exceptionalism." —Congressman Steve King, R-Iowa

"Almost since the launch of our web site back in 2000, GOPUSA has been proud to publish Doug Patton's work. Doug's conservative analysis of issues, his experience in the political arena, and his exceptional way with words make him one of the finest columnists writing today." —Bobby Eberle, PhD, President & CEO,

“Doug Patton writes from a refreshing perspective. His commentary is innovative, logical and straightforward. His style is enveloping—it pulls you along, always wanting to read more. Doug makes you stop and think. No commentator in today’s contemporary public policy journalism is as artful with the English language and as forceful in philosophy of government.” — Hal Daub, former U.S. Congressman and Mayor of Omaha, Nebraska

Doug and his wife, Pam, a nationally known watercolor artist, live in Nebraska, in a 100-year-old home built by Pam's grandfather. They have two grown sons and five young grandchildren.
