About Dr. Gosar
Dr. Paul Gosar is a conservative Republican representing Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District and currently serving in his fourth term.
After 25 years as a dentist and watching Arizona middle-class families and small businesses struggle under Washington Democrats’ job-killing and burdensome agenda, Paul decided it was time to make a difference. In 2010 he ran for Congress against an incumbent Democrat - and won. Determined to stand up for Arizona families, Paul has continued to challenge the status quo, offer common sense solutions, fight against liberals and Special Interests, and often, stand up to his own party.
Paul knows that Arizona families want more freedom and less government. He believes that the Constitution is the greatest governing document in world history and that this sacred charter is the cornerstone of our Republic.
As a member of Congress, he is focused on fighting for the interests of the people of Arizona. By repealing burdensome regulations and fostering an environment for economic growth, he's working to create more jobs for our families. He's working to keep our families safe by securing the border and ending the influx of illegal immigration. And he's reforming government by cutting federal spending and forcing accountability.
This year, Paul was named Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus, founded twenty years ago to promote rural values, preserve our uniquely American way of life, and combat federal overreach over our land, water, and natural resources.
He was also named Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee's Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources which oversees American energy production and mining on federal lands, critical to Arizona's economy.
Paul is a devout family man and cherishes Arizona's culture of family values. He and his wife Maude have been married for more than 25 years and have three children.
In the 113th Congress, Paul was the most effective member of Congress, passing six bills into public law, getting 12 other legislative efforts signed into law, and passing 24 amendments through the House. He is fondly called “the Hound of the House” by his colleagues as a result of the relentless way he pursues cosponsors and pushes his legislative initiatives forward. Paul's tireless work-ethic has earned him a reputation as one of the most efficient and hard-working members in Congress.
