Biography

Stewart's parents raised him and his nine brothers and sisters on a dairy farm in Idaho. He took a hiatus from college at Utah State University to work as a Morman missionary in Texas before graduating in 1984 with a bachelor's degree in economics. After serving as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force for fourteen years, Stewart went on to become a small-business owner and author of several books. He and his wife, Evie, have six children.[2][3]

Career

  • U.S. Air Force (1984-1998)
  • Owner of Shipley Group (2000-present)
  • Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, Utah District 2 (2012-present)

Issues

Campaign themes

According to Stewart's website, his campaign themes include:

  • Medicare: "...implementing free market reforms, the cost of Medicare can be contained while Americans are assured they will have access to quality medical coverage when they enter retirement age."
  • Tax code: "The current tax code is unjustifiably complex and unfair. It is designed to benefit those who have the money to pay lawyers and accountants and to disadvantage those who are trying to play by the rules."
  • Immigration: "Because of this failure, illegal immigration has become a national security threat."[4]
