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.[3] The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, were on the general election ballot.[4] She was defeated in the August 7, 2012, primary.[5]

Republican incumbent Doc Hastings won with almost 68% of the vote in 2010. This year he is challenged by fellow Republican Wheeler and Democrats Mary Baechler and Mohammad Said.

In late July 2012, Hastings had a huge lead in fundraising.[6] 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.[6]

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.[6]

The district Democratic Party backed Baechler.[6]
