Steven Brett Guthrie (born February 18, 1964) is a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Kentucky's 2nd congressional district, based about Bowling Green. Guthrie is a former member of the Kentucky State Senate, having represented the 32nd district where he had served from 1999-2008. Guthrie served as vice chairman of the Economic Development, Tourism and Labor Committee, and was chairman of the Transportation Committee. In the 2008 congressional general election, he defeated his Democratic opponent, State Senator David Boswell from Sorgho in Daviess County, for the right to succeed the retiring Republican U.S. Representative Ron Lewis of Hardin County.

Guthrie earned his Bachelor of Science in Mathematical economics from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1987[1] and his Master's of Public and Private Management from Yale University in 1997.

Guthrie is a former vice president of Trace Die Cast, Inc., an automotive parts supplier based in Bowling Green. Guthrie has previously served as a field artillery officer in the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

With his family, Guthrie attends the Lehman Avenue Church of Christ in Bowling Green, Kentucky, as reported by the Christian Chronicle; Michael Greene, minister of the Lehman Avenue congregation, said that he has no doubt "Guthrie’s faith will play a positive role" in representation of the 2nd district.[2]
