David Scott Limbaugh (born December 11, 1952) is a conservative American political commentator and author. He has also worked as a professor and as a lawyer. He is the younger brother of talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.[1]


Limbaugh was born on December 11, 1952 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.[2] His father, Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Jr., and his grandfather, Rush Hudson Limbaugh, Sr. were lawyers.

David Limbaugh has a bachelor's degree, cum laude, in political science and a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Missouri.[3] He also served in the National Guard for six years. He has written columns that are carried by Creators Syndicate,[4] Townhall.com, WorldNetDaily, Jewish World Review, The Washington Times[citation needed], and Newsmax.[5] In addition to his legal and writing work, Limbaugh also works as an agent for several conservative talk radio hosts, including his brother.[6]

After his admission to the bar in 1978, Limbaugh taught business law at Southeast Missouri State University. He practices law as a partner at The Limbaugh Firm, where he specializes in entertainment law.[7]

Limbaugh was chosen by Christian apologists Norman Geisler and Frank Turek[8] to write the foreword to their book I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Crossway, 2004). In the book, Limbaugh states that he came to Christ after years as a skeptic and is now passionate about Christian apologetics.[9]

He has been married to his wife, Lisa, since 1986. They have five children.[10] Limbaugh has written several books, some of which have been bestsellers.
