|U.S. House, Washington, District 4|
Wheeler was a homeschooling mother and former Tri-Cities Homeschool Support Group Coordinator.
According to her website, Wheeler's campaign platform included the following issues:
- Repeal the Affordable Care Act
- Oppose the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty
- Reduce the national debt
Wheeler ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Washington's 4th District. She sought the nomination as a Republican and faced incumbent Doc Hastings (R), Mohammad Said (D) and Mary Baechler (D) in the August 7, 2012, primary. The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, were on the general election ballot. She was defeated in the August 7, 2012, primary.
In late July 2012, Hastings had a huge lead in fundraising. Physician Said and tea party activist Wheeler had under $5,000 each, with professional community organizer Baechler just exceeding that in the last reporting period.
On the issues, Hastings has a record of supporting budget cuts and opposing the Affordable Care Act. Wheeler wants to defund several major federal agencies. Palestinian-born Said focuses on foreign policy issues, wanting a nuclear-free Middle East. Baechler would seek to defend Social Security and Medicare programs.
The district Democratic Party backed Baechler.
