SALT LAKE CITY — Republican Bob Fuehr is taking another crack at getting elected to Congress.
This time the retired telecommunications executive filed to run in the 4th Congressional District, where he lives. Two years ago, Fuehr didn't make it out of convention in the 2nd District.
"I'm here to solve the problems that need to be solved. We have so many problems in America that are not being addressed, and we have to get them fixed if we want to go forward," he said.
Fuehr listed job creation, balancing the federal budget and restoring the Constitution as top priorities.
He acknowledges he has an uphill battle for name recognition in a race that includes Republican Mia Love, who narrowly lost to Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson in 2012. The seven-term congressman is not seeking re-election.
Fuehr said he has about five weeks for state delegates to get to know him before the state GOP convention. He plans to soon roll out a media campaign featuring billboards and radio ads.
Democrats Doug Owens and Bill Peterson, and Libertarian Jim Vein are also running in the 4th District.
