As a man focused on faith, family, and freedom, Rob Arlett brings a servant's heart to Delaware's United States Senate race to retire Senator Carper and put the people first.
As a Christian man, he believes that each life is a miracle and is given a gift that is to be used in God’s honor. Rob believes fear is the enemy of progress and our job is to do what is right, not what is easy.
As a family man, Rob has experienced real struggles as many Americans have. He recognizes many issues we face today as a Nation are the result of a broken home and the strength to overcome struggle is the power of an intact family unit.
As a man who has raised his right hand twice to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” Rob will fight for the freedoms of all United States citizens, such as the right to Religious Liberty, the 2nd amendment, property rights, and educational choice.
Defeating a 16-year incumbent, Rob has served as the County Councilman of Sussex County since 2015. He has fought for public safety, economic growth, fiscal responsibility, transparent government, responsible environmental practices, and property rights. Arlett also served as President Trump's Delaware State Chairman during the 2016 presidential election and supports his "America First" agenda.
In addition to his public service, Rob is the owner of a Delaware-based real estate company, which he started in 2007. Prior to entering the business and public service, Rob served in the United States Naval Reserve as an Intelligence Specialist. As a father, son, brother, and uncle to Veterans, taking care of those who fought for our freedom is close to his heart.
He and his wife, Lorna, have been happily married for nearly 29 years and are the proud parents of two adult sons. They reside in coastal Sussex County near Fenwick Island where they attend High Tide Church. In 2013, Rob was a founding member and organizer for “Operation Seas The Day,” a community-based organization that provides a free beach week to 25 wounded warriors and their families in the Bethany Beach area.
