Rep. Mark Lofgren, R-Muscatine, announced his candidacy on Wednesday for Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District Seat.

Lofgren, who has served two years in the Iowa House, is the chairman of the International Relations Committee and vice chairman of the Appropriations Committee. “Uncontrolled spending in Washington is threatening our future and the future of our children,” Lofgren said in a release. “I’ve worked hard while serving in the Iowa House to bring fiscal responsibility to the table, and I’ll take that same respect for the taxpayer to Washington.”

Lofgren is a small-business owner who lives in Muscatine with his wife and two children.
