John Hauler was born in Detroit. He attended Oakland Community College.
Hauler swept the floors of his father's machine shop at age 7, and by 16 was an apprentice to the trade and art of constructing tool and die.
Hauler worked in the automotive industry before taking a position with Ace Electronics in the mid-2000s as a director of new business development. He also served as a military contractor to the Tank and Automotive Command.
He was the Republican nominee for Michigan's 13th Congressional District seat in 2010, losing in the general election.
Hauler and his wife, Barbara, reside in Grosse Pointe Woods.
John Hauler is making his second bid for the U.S. House, running in 2012 as the Republican nominee for Michigan's 14th Congressional District.
Michigan lost a congressional seat after the 2010 census, and Hauler changed districts as a result. In 2010, he ran for Michigan's 13th District seat, falling to Hansen Clarke. He received 29 percent of the vote to Clarke's 68 percent.
In the 2012 general election, he faces Rep. Gary Peters, the incumbent representing the 9th Congressional District, who defeated Clarke in the August primary.
Hauler, a businessman from Grosse Pointe Woods, said he is running again to "make sure Congress does their job representing the American people."
He said his life was "a model for the American dream."
Hauler believes that education decisions should be made at the state and local level. "Improving education is the first step in maintaining economic competitiveness around the globe. My goal is to reduce burdensome regulatory hurdles at the federal level to allow state and local governments, and most importantly parents, the opportunity to craft education plans that best suit the needs of their children and the community," he said.
He opposes the 2010 health care reform bill calling the legislation "overarching."
"The appropriate way to improve our healthcare system is through common sense solutions, not big government power-grabs," Hauler said.
