Bob served as Chairman of the Colorado Republican Party from 1999-2002. In 2002, Bob was elected as the first representative from Colorado’s seventh congressional district, and was re-elected in 2004. While in Congress, he served on the Ways & Means, Transportation, and Veterans Committees. He was the Republican nominee for Governor in 2006 and 2014.
In 2007 Bob founded a public policy e-magazine, A Line of Sight. As editor-in-chief, Bob has built a national distribution and more than 100 contributing authors. His work has been featured in National Review, The Washington Times, Townhall.com, RealClearPolitics, Politico.com, The Hill, The Daily Caller, The Denver Post, and numerous other publications. In 2009, Bob published his first book, A Return to Values, that has been applauded for his bold “Agenda for America,” a strategic plan to reclaim our nation’s greatness.
In addition to his writing, political, and other activities, Bob says his greatest enjoyment comes from Eagle’s Wing Ranch, the buffalo breeding ranch in the northern Colorado Mountains he operates with his son, Jim, and Claudia, his wife of 42 years. The ranch renews the bond he’s always enjoyed with the land, livestock, and nature – and he gets a lot of time to think. It’s where he and Claudia love to spend time with their four children and four grandchildren and count their abundant blessings.
