Beau Gunderson was one of two 2004 Washington state 5th legislative district Libertarian Party candidates for the United States House of Representatives. Gunderson was born in Bellevue, Washington. His residence at the time was Fall City in legislative district 5 of Washington state where he had his candidacy. The 5th legislative district in Washington state had no Libertarian Party candidates for the two House of Representatives positions at the time of Washington state's primary election. Stepping up in the absence of such runners, Gunderson and Keith Kemp decided to run for those positions. Making the requisite 1% in the primary, the two were on the general election ballot for November 2, 2004. Running mate Keith Kemp is also one of two 2004 Washington state 5th legislative district Libertarian Party House of Representatives candidates.
