Meet Rob Maness

Retired Colonel Rob Maness has a life long record of providing dedicated service to the nation. He made the decision as a 17-year-old high school senior to enlist in the United States Air Force and serve in uniform as the country faced multiple crises around the world. Having worked his way up from the enlisted ranks to full colonel, he retired from active duty in 2011, ending his military service of more than 32 years. Following military retirement Rob returned to Louisiana to work as an executive in a Fortune 500 energy corporation. He is currently the owner of Iron Liberty Group and resides in Madisonville, Louisiana.


Rand Paul

"The United States is in desperate need of principled constitutional conservatives committed to protecting individual liberty...He is a staunch believer in our 4th amendment rights and understands that to truly protect liberty, we must protect the entire Bill of Rights."

Senator Rand Paul

Governor Sarah Palin

"Col. Maness is a 32-year decorated combat veteran whose story of service is incredible – from commanding the 6th largest Air Force base in the world, to rushing back into the burning embers of the Pentagon to search for colleagues on September 11th, Rob has faced down challenges tougher than a political campaign!"

Governor Sarah Palin

Rick Perry

"Col. Maness was on the ground at the Pentagon when the terrorists struck. He helped craft our national response. In the age of terrorism we need a leader like Col. Maness to win our war with ISIS abroad and keep our people safe at home."

Governor Rick Perry

General Paul Vallely

"America and Louisiana desperately need experienced warrior-leaders, and he is an actual warrior and leader who will make the tough calls to protect Americans, defend the Constitution, and fight against the Washington Cartel to bring America back to the strength it needs to be the shining city on a hill envisioned by all Americans."

General Paul Vallely, U.S. Army Major General, Retired

Dr. Ben Carson

"He is an outsider with over 32 years of military service and a proven track record of leadership. At a time where we face threats from around the world, Colonel Maness is the right type of leader we need to keep our country safe. He will be a voice of reason, who will bring his highly experienced military background as a commander and national security expert. We need leaders who will protect our Judeo-Christian beliefs and the Constitution, and Colonel Maness will do just that. He is a man with great character and a strong moral compass."

Dr. Ben Carson
