Freshman U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp has coasted to an easy re-election victory to represent the 1st Congressional District in Kansas.

The conservative Republican incumbent was unopposed in the primary election and faced no Democratic challenger in Tuesday's general election.

He has promised to work for the repeal of the federal health care overhaul after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law.

Huelskamp, a Kansas farmer, has boasted on his campaign website that as a former state senator he led the state's effort to defund Planned Parenthood in Kansas and prohibit taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research. He has said he would do the same in Congress.
