RE: Danelle Dodge is on the Ballot – FL08

Danelle Dodge is officially running to represent Florida’s 8th congressional district in Washington.

 “It is time we have true responsive representation for ALL the people of our community. I am honored to be on the short list to earn the opportunity to serve.” Dodge said.

As a small business owner, childbirth educator, former military wife, and mother of four adult children, Dodge has worked in schools, libraries and hospitals with people from all backgrounds. She will work hard to make sure all people have equal access to housing, education, and the ballot box.

“Without robust civil rights, human rights and a safer, healthier planet, there can be no true democracy,” Dodge said.

 As a U.S. representative, Dodge said that, unlike her opponent, she will work hard for all District 8 residents “to provide tangible services that make the best use of tax dollars, and make our community a thriving hub of innovation, education, growth and success.”

Join the Danelle Dodge campaign at 7:30am Friday, May 27 in Cape Canaveral, FL to board a bus bound for Washington, D.C., for a “We Do Not Consent Rally.” Let the world know we will not be pulled back into the Dark Ages, and that all Americans have the right over their own bodies. 

Over the last few years we have heard we could be facing a Constitutional crisis, and now it’s here, in the form of a draft decision by the Supreme Court to strike down Roe v. Wade. This decision will throw out a 50-year precedent, overturning “a Woman’s Right to Privacy over her own body, and to make her own medical decisions.” 

The time for waiting to see what happens is over. Lawsuits and protests after the fact are not as effective as proactive responses such as expanding the court, standing in protest, and boycotting states and businesses that do not respect women’s rights.

 The forces behind this push to strip away the rights of women in America will not stop here.  If this decision stands, then every past Supreme Court decision can be called into question. For example “access to contraceptives like birth control and condoms,”  “marriage equality including gay and interracial marriage,” and “public education for all.”  All of these decisions are crucial to our freedom, yet every day we are seeing more and more restrictive legislation being voted on in state houses around the country that reads like a script from “The Handmaid’s Tale.” 

The majority of Americans believes that a woman has a right to autonomy over her own body.  This is proven in the polls and has been affirmed by the courts over and over.  Extremist fascist right-wing conservatives have been attacking our country for long enough.

This Memorial Day, stand against this gross attack on our freedoms. For more information visit

Official Announcement of Candidacy Press Release

Danelle Dodge Steps into the Race for FL District 8

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Danelle Dodge, 51, of Cape Canaveral Fla., announced her candidacy for Florida’s 8th Congressional District, officially filing on Feb. 16, 2022. She is running on a Common Sense Governance platform.

“It is the duty of a Representative to be the community’s connection to the Federal Government, federal dollars and federal resources to address the issues facing their constituents,” said Dodge. She plans to listen, support and advocate for ALL the people of FL District 8.

Her passion for people, family and fairness drive her to stand up and say it’s time for change.

“Expanding critical safety nets like Social Security and Medicare, making middle class tax cuts and child tax credits permanent, restoration of the Indian River Lagoon and a high speed rail stop in the district are just a few projects where advocacy for funding at the Federal level can make a huge difference in Floridians lives,” Dodge said.

Dodge is the Co-Owner and VP of Total Recall Inc., an Educational Technology Company established in 2004 in Gig Harbor, WA. She was also certified in 2007 as a Childbirth Educator (teaching from 2007-2017) and Birth Doula. She graduated from the University of Washington Tacoma in 2000 with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences with a Concentration in Self and Society.  Dodge is a former Navy spouse, mother of 4 adult children, and married to her husband Andrew.  She also volunteers with the Cape Canaveral Friends of the Library and moderates their monthly Library Book Club.
