On September 11th, 2001 Evan was in training at CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. He completed his training and volunteered for overseas service spearheading counterterrorism and intelligence operations in some of the most dangerous places on earth.

Having completed his CIA service, in 2011, Evan transitioned to the Investment Banking world.  Evan worked with companies in several industries to include; technology, energy, consumer goods, biotech, industrials and real estate.

In 2013, McMullin joined the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as a senior advisor and later became the chief policy director of the House Republican Conference.

On August 8, 2016, he declared his candidacy for President of the United States saying, “In a year where Americans have lost faith in the candidates of both major parties, it’s time for a generation of new leadership to step up. It’s never too late to do the right thing, and America deserves much better than either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton can offer us. I humbly offer myself as a leader who can give millions of disaffected Americans a better choice for President.” (original text; evanmcmullin.com)

“We need a simplified tax code”

“Those who embrace the dignity and value of every human life from conception until death; who understand the crushing danger of our unsustainable national debt; who believe deference to our Constitution outweighs partisan political priorities are all looking for something better than the two major party candidates are offering.”(original text; evanmcmullin.com)

“We need to move power closer to the people.”
