Chris Stewart, a Republican, currently represents Utah's 2nd congressional district in U.S.
After a year in college, Stewart served as a Mormon missionary. He re-entered Utah State
University, earning a degree in economics from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.
Stewart served as a pilot in the Air Force for 14 years, flying rescue helicopters, fixed-wing
jets, and the B-1B bomber. After his military career, Stewart was president and CEO of the
Shipley Group, a consulting firm specializing in energy and environmental issues.
In 2011, Stewart announced that he was running for Congress. He won by 62% of the vote.
His tenure has been marked by efforts to defund or repeal the Affordable Care Act
(Obamacare), denial of climate change, and vigorous defense of Trump. A July 2019 poll
showed Stewart with the lowest approval rating of any member of Utah's congressional
delegation. After the release of the Mueller report, Stewart accused the "former leadership"
of the FBI, the Department of Justice, and the CIA of “astounding” corruption. The
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) considers Stewart vulnerable to
a strong opponent, because of Trump's unpopularity in the district.
Stewart is also an author and has written several best sellers, including the series “The
Great and the Terrible.” He is married to Evie Stewart.
