Congressman Tim Huelskamp (HYUELS-camp) was elected to his first term as a United States Representative in November 2010. In the 113th Congress he represents Kansas’ First Congressional District, known as the “Big First.”

Congressman Huelskamp was born near and raised on the family farm in Fowler, Kansas. Pioneered by his grandparents Martin and Clara in 1926, the farm operation includes raising corn, cattle, wheat, milo, soybeans and kids. There he learned the value of hard work and personal responsibility, a strong family life and the essentials of his Catholic Christian faith.

Congressman Huelskamp attended elementary and high school in Fowler, where he was a Farm Bureau Youth Leader, a member of St. Anthony’s Parish, and active in both 4-H and Future Farmers of America.

Following high school, Congressman Huelskamp attended a seminary in Santa Fe, New Mexico and pursued his bachelor’s degree in social science education at the College of Santa Fe.

After his undergraduate education, Congressman Huelskamp accepted a scholarship to pursue doctoral studies at The American University in Washington, D.C. In four years he obtained a Ph.D. in Political Science with a specialization in agriculture policy.

During his time at American University, Congressman Huelskamp met his wife, Angela, and together they were active in assisting women in crisis pregnancies. Additionally, Tim was busy as a college instructor teaching public policy and working as a statistical analyst.

Upon graduation, Congressman and Mrs. Huelskamp turned down various job offers and decided to return home to farm, ranch and raise a family in Fowler. Before coming to Congress, he was first elected to the Kansas Senate in 1996, the youngest senator elected in twenty years. Tim was re-elected by his constituents three times by wide margins – 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Congressman and Mrs. Huelskamp are the proud parents of four adopted children: Natasha, Rebecca, Athan and Alexander. Both girls are from Haiti, while the two boys were already Americans. Tim enjoys working in his church and remains involved as a lector and usher. He also continues to enjoy involvement in various civic organizations, hunting, playing sports with his kids, and reading with the family. Meanwhile, Angela continues to work promoting and fostering adoptions.
