Path To Power
Gosar received his DDS from the Creighton Boyne School of Dentistry, then opened his own dentistry practice, which he has run for 25 years.
He has been involved in local politics -- Gosar led a 2001 push to add fluoride to Flagstaff, Ariz.'s water supply, although the measure was defeated in a mail-in election -- but this is his first run for political office.
Gosar is against abortion rights and was endorsed by Arizona Right-to-Life. He believes energy independence must be a priority, sayiing that "Not only do we need to be drilling more at home, but we also need to explore all alternative options, such as bi-products, geothermal, nuclear, wind and solar energies."
He has said he would cut taxes and doesn't support increased financial regulation.
Gosar has been endorsed by Sarah Palin, has appeared with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Gov. Jan Brewer, and has been praised by NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Tex.).
