After college and law school, he practiced international trade law in Washington, DC and business law in Cincinnati. In 1993, Rob was elected to Congress, where he represented the diverse seven county Second District.

In 2005, he left Congress when he was asked to serve as U.S. Trade Representative. Rob Portman was elected to the Senate in 2010. Through scholarships and summer jobs, Steve Daines put himself through Montana State University, earning a B.S. in chemical engineering.

After marrying his wife, the couple moved back to Montana so that Mr. Daines could work for his family's construction company. In 2000, he joined RightNow Technologies, a start-up business, as VP of customer service. He has been active in politics for most of his life, even serving as Montana chairman for Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign. Steve Daines won election to Congress in 2012 by 53 to 43%.
