Danny Bedwell was born in Cairo, Ill., and resides in Columbus, Miss. He does not have a college degree but describes himself as a constitutional scholar, having studied the U.S. Constitution for more than 20 years.
He is a retired Navy diver. He currently is self-employed in the timber industry and is an owner of North American Tie and Timber in Columbus.
Bedwell is state chairman for the Libertarian Party of Mississippi and making his first try for elected office.
He was one of three delegates from Mississippi to the 2009 Continental Congress sponsored by the We The People Foundation.
He and his wife, Sheri, have a daughter.
Danny Bedwell, a Libertarian, is one of four candidates challenging freshman Republican Rep. Alan Nunnelee in north Mississippi's 1st Congressional District in 2012.
Bedwell says he is running for Congress to fight what he sees as moves by the federal government to invalidate the U.S. Constitution.
On his campaign website, he says he wants to repeal unconstitutional legislation, reduce spending and fight for fiscal responsibility.
"In short, I want to go to Washington DC so that I may regulate the federal government," he said.
Bedwell says the problems facing the country are not because the people haven't been regulated enough, but rather because the people have too much regulation.
According to the Federal Election Commission, Bedwell has not reported raising or spending any money on his campaign.
