Brett Guthrie Biography



Steven Brett Guthrie (born February 18, 1964) is the U.S. Representative for Kentucky's 2nd congressional district, a Bowling Green-based district, since 2009. He is a member of the Republican Party. He previously served in the Kentucky Senate.


Early life, education, and career

Guthrie earned his Bachelor of Science in mathematical economics from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1987 and his Master's of Public and Private Management from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1997.

Guthrie is a former vice president of Trace Die Cast, Inc., an automotive parts supplier based in Bowling Green. Guthrie has previously served as a field artillery officer in the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.


Kentucky Senate

Guthrie represented the 32nd district in the Kentucky Senate from 1999 to 2008, where he served as vice chairman of the Economic Development, Tourism and Labor Committee, and was chairman of the Transportation Committee.


U.S. House of Representatives

In the 2008 congressional general election, he defeated his Democratic opponent, State Senator David Boswell from Sorgho in Daviess County, for the right to succeed the retiring Republican U.S. Representative Ron Lewis of Hardin County. Lewis announced his retirement on the last day for candidates to file for the seat in 2008, in hopes of steering the Republican nomination to his chief of staff, Daniel London. Guthrie, however, filed his papers and defeated London for the party nomination.


Guthrie defeated Democrat Ed Marksberry by a large margin.


Based on a questionnaire and the votes that the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund considered to be the most important in 1998, they assigned Representative Guthrie a grade of B. He has since received A's from the NRA and various other Second Amendment rights advocacy groups.


Personal life

With his family, Guthrie attends the Lehman Avenue Church of Christ in Bowling Green, Kentucky, as reported by the Christian Chronicle; Michael Greene, minister of the Lehman Avenue congregation, said that he has no doubt "Guthrie’s faith will play a positive role" in representation of the 2nd district.
