A Republican, he is a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly representing the 41st assembly district, which comprises most of Green Lake and Marquette counties, as well as the southern half of Adams County.

In February 2020, incumbent 41st district assemblymember Joan Ballweg announced she would forego reelection to the Assembly and would instead seek election to the Wisconsin State Senate in 2020.[2] Just days later, Dallman announced he would run for the Republican nomination to replace Ballweg in the Wisconsin State Assembly.[3] Dallman, who faced three opponents in the Republican primary,[4] received the endorsement of former Republican Governor Scott Walker in the days just before the primary.[5] He prevailed with nearly 50% of the primary vote.[6] He went on to defeat Democrat Nate Zimdars and independent Jean Bartz in the general election with 60% of the vote.[7][8][9]
