Tim Huelskamp filed for re-election to Congress in the 1st District of Kansas on Monday.
Huelskamp submitted the necessary paperwork with the Kansas Secretary of State in Topeka.
“As I have traveled across the Big First conducting 126 town hall meetings, I have heard time and again from Kansans who are tired of out-of-control spending, borrowing and overregulation and Washington’s unwillingness to tackle these problems,” Huelskamp said. “The consequences for future generations of Americans could be catastrophic.”
Huelskamp said he has done what he promised he would do when voters elected him to Congress: leading by example on the issue of spending, returning to the U.S. Treasury 10 percent of his annual office budget. Huelskamp has been an advocate for the repeal of ObamaCare.
“We have been successful in stopping burdensome regulations, like the Department of Labor rule that would have prevented farm kids from working on the family farm,” Huelskamp said. “But every day the threat of red tape from Washington worsens. I will continue to lead the fight against overregulation from Washington.”
Huelskamp is a Republican from Fowler. He represents the 1st Congressional District of Kansas, also known as the “Big First.” He serves on the Agriculture, Budget and Veterans' Affairs committees.
