Art Moore was a 2014 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 4th Congressional District of California.[1]


Moore graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a bachelor's degree in political science. He served in active duty and in the National Guard and is currently a Major in the Army National Guard. Moore has worked in the private sector as a business executive and as a management consultant.[2]


Campaign themes


Moore's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Representation: "I grew up and live in the 4th District. As your representative, I will work to address our tough challenges, and ensure the voices of our constituents are heard and the best interests of the district are represented. I believe in individual liberty, limited government, and personal responsibility; and I am passionate about fixing a federal government that is not working for the district and for the vast majority of Americans."
  • Jobs and the Economy: "While most coastal areas of California now show some jobs growth, this economic recovery bypassed most of the interior regions including the counties of the 4th District. More critically, this economic recovery skipped many of our middle class jobs, with job growth predominantly in the higher and lower wages. Unemployment remains unacceptably high. Even those with jobs face underemployment, working only part-time, and far too many have simply given up and left the workforce."
  • Water: "State and federal agencies spent nearly a quarter of a century and well over $5 billion on studies, planning, and other measures intended to ensure reliable water supplies needed by farms, cities, and the environment in our growing state. When state and federal water projects announced they reduced water deliveries to zero, the enormity of their failure became clear. Many other local and regional systems similarly are hard pressed to guarantee water supplies following yet another period of drought."
  • 2nd Amendment: "The 2nd Amendment is a fundamental right that protects the liberties of all Americans. My lifelong relationship with firearms includes: shooting sports in the Tahoe National Forest during a twelve-year journey to Eagle Scout, four years at West Point, and fourteen years as an Army Infantryman and combat veteran. I will do everything I can to promote and defend the rights of all law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms."
  • Obamacare: "I strongly oppose Obamacare. It needs to be repealed and replaced. Federal health care reform was supposed to do two basic things: reduce growing health care costs and provide health care coverage for the small percentage who had no other option. It was not supposed to complicate health insurance for the 80-90% who were already covered. It was not supposed to make health care more costly, more uncertain, subject to the whims of an incompetent bureaucracy, and impose an unfair economic burden on young adults and families just starting out in life."
