WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Feb 10, 2012) - Running for U.S. Congress in Utah's new 4th District is Rep. Stephen Sandstrom who will share with CPAC 2012 attendees on Saturday, February 11 at 3:30 p.m. why causes such as reducing federal spending and repealing the Affordability Care Act are critical to moving the conservative platform forward in Utah and nationwide.

Prior to CPAC, Rep. Sandstrom took time to meet face-to-face with several of Utah's federal representatives to share Utah's most pressing issues and concerns, and ensure Washington, D.C. is listening to Utah constituents.

"At this time more than ever, it is critical that we keep our states' rights fire burning in Washington," said Sandstrom. "What many citizens and voters don't realize is that they each have a voice with their local, state, and federal representatives. If elected to Congress in November, I plan to make listening, learning, and doing a priority."

Sandstrom recently received designation from the National Republican Congressional Committee's "Young Guns" program that he's on the radar. The NRCC announced Sandstrom's addition Thursday, with NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas saying: "We are looking forward to working with Stephen Sandstrom, who has already proven himself by meeting rigorous benchmarks in the Young Guns program that will position his campaign for victory."
