|Info||Rob Lauer was born April 6, 1970 and adopted at birth. Raised by a family that stressed service as honorable and dutiful, Rob has lived his life committed to volunteerism. |
Rob served on the student senate while in college and studied political science at the University of Southern California. Rob studied military science while serving as an officer cadet in the Army Reserves until federal budget cuts forced an end to his military service in 1993.
While at USC, Rob began his civilian career in real estate with the founding of Lauer Properties. Rob worked in commercial and residential redevelopment, winning him acclaim from local government as a community leader. He cleaned up neighborhoods full of drugs and gangs.
Also during college, Rob interned on Capitol Hill for Congressman Duncan Hunter, House Armed Services Committee Chairman, and served as a member of President George H.W. Bush’s advance team in the 1992 election.
Over the years, Rob volunteered for numerous congressional candidates and other public officials. He joined the Rotary club, Lincoln Clubs, Chamber of Commerce and many other public service organizations.
In 2005, Rob responded to the Army’s need for volunteers by enlisting in the US Army. Rob graduated from Basic Training in August 2005 and joined the 314th MP Company. Shortly thereafter, Rob graduated from the US Army’s Military Police school and became an MP.
In January 2008, Rob volunteered to serve in Iraq, but was unable to complete his duty due to an injury he sustained. He was flown to USC Spine Center where he underwent back surgery. Three months later, Rob applied to return to his unit in Iraq but the Army denied his request due to his recent injury. So, Rob joined the McCain campaign and worked for almost three months until the election.
In 2009, Rob decided to run for elected office and launched his campaign for Nevada Secretary of State.
