SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The National Republican Congressional Committee last week identified Bob Fuehr as “on the radar,” placing the Utah 4th District Congressional candidate on its three-tiered “Young Guns” program. This early campaign achievement and recognition indicates that Fuehr shows the potential to achieve greater status in the NRCC’s program as the cycle progresses.
Commenting on the depth and breadth of his business and community experience he brings to the field of 4th District candidates, Fuehr said, “As a formidable candidate in this race, I look forward to continuing my campaign for the nomination. While my daily focus is on the concerns of Utah’s 4th District delegates and constituents, the recognition that comes with this NRCC ‘Young Gun’ designation is an additional indicator of the momentum we are building in this race.”
Among Fuehr’s top issues are returning Americans to work and fixing the country’s tax code. As a session panelist during the recent CPAC 2014 in Washington, D.C., Fuehr and other experts on the U.S. economy and tax policy, including Americans for Tax Reform Founder Grover Norquist, spoke on bringing solutions to the income divide in the United States.
During the next four weeks, Fuehr will meet regularly with Utah Republican state delegates to address and answer their questions before the nomination process takes place at the Utah Republican State Convention on April 26, 2014.
As the former Director of Utah’s Office of Business and Economic Development and Fortune 500 executive, Bob Fuehr is entering the UT-4 race in 2014 to bring seasoned leadership and functional resolve to Washington, D.C. Fuehr earned a National Merit Scholarship to go to Case Institute of Technology and was then named the Humphrey Fellow at Harvard where he earned his MBA. Rising through the ranks of corporate America, Fuehr eventually became US WEST Vice President for Utah in 1990; he has served on multiple community and business boards and organizations including Southern Utah University, Salt Lake United Way, Zions Bank, and the Pioneer Memorial Theater. www.bobfuehr.com.
