About Pete du Pont

Pete du Pont possessed clear vision, buoyant enthusiasm and a fascination for innovative approaches to old problems. Whether pushing for lower and fairer taxes, more effective government spending, greater choice in education, or eliminating the stifling impact of overly burdensome regulation, Pete worked to empower individuals, families, and businesses. He believed decisions, to the extent possible, should be made in offices, shop floors, classrooms, and around kitchen tables.
