Dick Swett

Biography:Dick Swett (born May 1, 1957) is an American politician from the U.S. state of New Hampshire.

Swett was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and moved to New Hampshire with his family as a child. He attended Yale University and became an architect. Swett became active in the United States Democratic Party and eventually began a political career. He was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1990 from the second district of New Hampshire. He was re-elected in 1992 but lost his reelection bid in 1994 to Republican Charles Bass.

In 1996, Swett ran as the Democratic Party candidate for a seat in the United States Senate from New Hampshire, against incumbent Republican Robert C. Smith but was defeated. On the night of the election, in what may have been the most famous moment of his political career, many American media networks falsely projected that Swett had won. This event was often mentioned four years later when media networks falsely project that Al Gore had won the presidential electors for Florida.

In 1998, Swett was appointed by Bill Clinton to be the United States ambassador to Denmark. He served in that position until 2001, and then moved back to New Hampshire. Swett's wife, Katrina, daughter of California congressman Tom Lantos, ran for her husband's old seat in 2002, losing to Bass.
