Dan Zwonitzer was born on October 30, 1979 (age 44 years) in Cheyenne, Wyoming, United States. He is a native and fifth-generation resident of Cheyenne.

As of 2019, Zwonitzer openly identifies himself as gay, and lists his spouse, Justin, on his official state legislative biography page. Zwonitzer was elected to the state House in 2004 after incumbent Edward R. Prosser lost the party nomination in the Republican primary. He then polled 60 percent of the general election vote.

Prosser, the son of the late Representative Dean T. Prosser, was unsuccessful in unseating Zwonitzer in the 2006 primary. Zwonitzer was reelected in 2008 by a 2-1 margin over Democratic challenger Kevin Lumsden. He faced no challenger in 2010, 2012, or 2018. In 2016, he defeated Bill Henderson who subsequently moved and won the House District 41 legislative seat in 2018.

Since Zwonitzer’s first election, no other candidate has been able to defeat an incumbent Wyoming state representative as a primary challenger. Upon election, Zwonitzer became the youngest serving Wyoming legislator since former Wyoming state treasurer and fellow Republican Cynthia Lummis was elected to the Wyoming House in 1978. Zwonitzer is now the senior elected official in Laramie County having served for eight terms and is 2nd in seniority out of the 60-member Wyoming House of Representatives.
