Former U.S. Senator Mike Cauke
After spending five years in private legal practice, Mike Cauke represented Iowa in the United States Senate from 2012 through 2016. Sen. Cauke, who hails from the small town of Cumming, Iowa, represents a new generation of compassionate conservatives who believe that employment non-discrimination is not just ethically fair but economically savvy. Cauke's new political action committee, CAUKE PAC, holds that equal rights are human rights, and that no one should be fired for marrying the person they love.

Sgt. Daniel Bingham, USMC (Ret.)
Daniel Bingham, USMC (retired), served with distinction in the United States Marine Corps from 2009 through 2015 before resigning his commission to join CAUKE PAC in early 2016. Bingham, who spent one tour in Iraq and three tours in Afghanistan, is fluent in French, Russian, and Arabic.

Former U.S. Rep. John Colby
John Colby is CAUKE PAC's Managing Director. Colby, a lifelong conservative from Arizona's 5th district, was outed in 2012 after voicing support for the Defense of Marriage Act. Since then, the former U.S. Representative has had a change of heart, becoming a vocal supporter of gay rights and workplace non-discrimination. Colby married his partner Victor Alonso, a special education teacher, in May of 2015.

Seth Murray, the Associate Director of CAUKE PAC, has known Mike Cauke since the two roomed together while attending law school in Sioux City, Iowa. Murray served as Sen. Cauke's campaign manager during his successful bid for U.S. Senate in 2012, and was the Iowa Senator's Chief of Staff until Sen. Cauke's resignation in February 2016. The two are close friends, often seen vacationing together, or dining out in Murray's hometown of Alexandria, VA.
