Guy Furay secures nomination for Congress as American Party candidate

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Local business leader Guy Furay has locked-in the American Party’s nomination for Congress in the Fourth District.

Furay founded The Insurance Source, an independent brokerage specializing in health, life, disability and dental insurance, in 2005 and has been extremely active in the Greenville, Spartanburg and Greer business communities.

His knowledge of the insurance industry is a main reason he decided to run as well as what sets him apart from the other candidates running for the seat being vacated by incumbent Trey Gowdy.

“Coming from an insurance background, one of my main goals is to repair our damaged healthcare system,” Furay said. “I understand what is working, what is broken and how we can fix it. Making sure everyone has access to affordable healthcare is a top priority.”

The political divide in Washington between Republicans and Democrats is the reason he is running as the candidate for American Party, which was formed in 2014 to present a centrist alternative to the current divided party system.

“My objective is being a “Listen First” candidate which means I always put the needs of the people first,” Furay said. “Congress should work for you not the other way around.”

Furay also outlined a campaign focused on setting term limits to keep elected officials working for the people not Washington insiders; increasing lackluster voter turnout and bridging the political divide that the party system has created.

A graduate of the University of Missouri, Furay began his insurance career in 1997 with BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. Furay earned the FLMI (Fellow, Life Management Institute) and GBA (Group Benefits Associate) designations. He also completed four of the eight graduate level courses to earn the CEBS (Certified Employee Benefit Specialist) designation at the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania.

In the past few years, he has been recognized as one of’s Elite Circle of Champions; a three time winner of the Soaring Eagle Award from National Association of Health Underwriters; a current member of Leadership Greer, a graduate of the Greenville Chamber Advanced Political Leadership program; a graduate of Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce Advanced Political Leadership program, and an Upstate Chamber Coalition Washington DC Delegation participant.

“I am ready to step up be the change people want to see in Congress. I am ready to change the status quo to where the people are put first,” Furay said. “I want to bring a voice to the people that both parties seem to have forgotten.”
