Dan Raulerson (born July 3, 1957) is a Republican member of the Florida House of Representatives, representing the 58th District, which includes northern Hillsborough County, since 2012.


Raulerson was born in Jacksonville, and attended Florida State University, where he graduated with a degree in accounting in 1979. He then moved to Orlando, where he worked for an accounting firm, and then moved to Plant City, where first managed a new branch that his firm was opening there, but later started Raulerson & Company, which is an accounting firm and consulting enterprise. In 2007, Raulerson was elected to serve as a City Commissioner in Plant City, and was elected by the Commission to serve as Mayor.

Florida House of Representatives

In 2012, following the reconfiguration of the Florida House of Representatives districts, Raulerson ran in the newly created 58th District, and won the nomination of the Republican Party unopposed. He faced Jose Vazquez, the Democratic nominee, in the general election. Raulerson campaigned on improving the efficiency of government, identifying his top priorities in the legislature as "Streamlining statutes, eliminating wasteful spending and making government more accountable for its performance."[1] The Tampa Bay Times strongly endorsed Raulerson, calling him "the only credible choice," largely because Vazquez's plan "is a mishmash of incoherent ideas."[2] The Tampa Tribune also endorsed Raulerson, noting that "[h]e knows how to handle a budget and how to wring efficiencies out of an operation," while his opponent "has a checkered past that includes arrests, hardly an appropriate resume for public office."[3] He defeated Vazquez by a solid margin, winning 57% of the vote. Raulerson was re-elected to his second term in the legislature in 2014 without opposition.
