Dick Armey was born in a small North Dakota town called Cando (pronounced can do) and that seemed to set the tone of his lifestyle.
Armey was the first of his family of nine children to attend college. He later served as Chairman of the Economics Department at the University of North Texas during the last five years of his tenure as a professor.
Armey served as a member of the House of Representatives from 1985 to 2003. He rose through the Republican Conference leadership from being Conference Chairman to serving as the House Majority Leader from 1995 until his retirement in 2003.
