SIOUX CITY | State Rep. Skyler Wheeler, R-Orange City, announced Wednesday he will seek re-election to the Iowa House District 4 seat.

Wheeler won his first seat in 2016. In a press release, he announced wanting to achieve more in a second  two-year term, on the heels of what he called passage of some of the most conservative legislation in Iowa history.

"I am very proud of what we have done as Republicans in Des Moines these last two years," he said.

Wheeler pointed to a new requirement for voter photo identification, expanded guns rights and legislation concerning abortion.

"We've strengthened gun rights for law-abiding citizens, we've shortened the amount of time one has to commit murder in the womb and we're inching toward protecting life from conception, we've helped return education closer to home and we listened to the majority of Iowans who demanded fair, open and honest elections," Wheeler said.

He said he will continue to push a Bible literacy bill, repeal of Common Core and tax reform.

"The conservative movement in Iowa is only beginning to accomplish its goals," Wheeler said.

Wheeler, 24, is manager of the Anytime Fitness and Apres Soleil Tanning in Orange City.

House District 4 is a heavily Republican district that covers most of Sioux County.
