Eric Gurr is a 48-year-old Ohioan and a lifelong Republican. He was born and raised in Hamilton, a suburb of Cincinnati. Mr. Gurr is the CEO of a computer consulting firm based in West Chester, Ohio. He is married and has three children as well as two grandchildren. He and his family reside in fast-growing Liberty Township. He has never run for political office before.
Oh, and he just happens to be challenging House Speaker John Boehner in the Republican primary for Ohio's 8th congressional district.
Mr. Gurr was kind enough to grant yours truly an exclusive interview.
Robert Elliott: Thank you for agreeing to do this interview, Mr. Gurr.
So did you go to college in Ohio? How does your family feel about your decision to run for high public office? What prompted someone who has never run for political office before to decide to challenge one of the most powerful elected officials in the country?
Eric Gurr: I went to college at The University of Cincinnati. I started out in mechanical engineering in 1983, then switched to computer related. I dropped out in '87 and have worked with computers, programming, and related endeavors since that time.
My family has been very supportive of my decision.
What prompted me to run was the realization that since 2008 Mr. Boehner had slowly pulled away from my views and what I thought was in the best interest of the nation long-term. I was not in favor of the TARP programs and I still think our monetary policy is on the wrong track.

Conservatives are targets in this nation. Just as we Christians have become targets also. But, that is fine. Bring it on. My God is bigger and more mighty than the made up god of Izzlum. My God is Yeshua and He is the Creator God of all. So get prepared folks. The End Times are now and time is short before our Lord returns for His Church. Don't be left behind.
Could it happen? I think so.
I really expect that you are right.
Boehner’s being blackmailed and once he does this last push and asks for the bm materials they will then release them to the media. Both to humiliate him, to send a message to everyone else, and to hurt the party.
It’s kinda what they did to Petraeus.
Always good when systems people run and win. They’re interested in truth and reality by design, and know how to kill shenanigans before they become policy.
What is the nature of Boehner’s blackmail? Dead boy/dead girl?
i will send him money.
this is exactly what we need! i am getting excited again!
Both. Maybe aliens.
ROFL ROFL “Undocumented Democrats” Love it!!! That is what I will call them for now on.
Love it =)
Yes I am a Freeper!
