InfoJohn Nathan Hostettler

Following the first election of Bill Clinton to the Presidency of the United States of America, John Hostettler decided to run for the House of Representatives. The contrast in political ideology between President Clinton and John Hostettler could not have been any greater and the incumbent that represented John Hostettler's home district maintained a voting record supportive of President Clinton's initiatives.

Having never run for public office before, John Hostettler surprised observers by emerging from a field of six (6) GOP candidates who vied to face the twelve (12) year incumbent. With an impressive "grass-roots" campaign organization, John Hostettler defeated the incumbent in November 1994. He did this while refusing to accept any special interest political action committee (PAC) money. This refusal remained in place for every campaign that John Hostettler subsequently engaged.

During his tenure in the United States House of Representatives, John Hostettler distinguished himself as a principled and innovative Conservative.

John Hostettler was defeated in his campaign for a seventh term in the United States House of Representatives in November 2006.
