Posted: Updated:

OSCEOLA, Iowa (AP) - An Osceola businesswoman has announced her Republican candidacy for the U.S. House seat representing Iowa's 2nd District.

Ginny Caligiuri (kal-uh-JUR'-ee) said in her news release Monday that she'll hold a campaign starting event Thursday in Osceola.

She says she's a "a pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-Israel, and pro-Constitution conservative." She says that in Congress she'd also focus on religious liberty, veterans services and increasing opportunities for small- and medium-size businesses.

Caligiuri is a former bank vice president who has a history of activism with political prayer and evangelical advocacy groups.

Coralville surgeon Christopher Peters announced his GOP candidacy last summer. The incumbent is Democrat Dave Loebsack.

The 2nd District covers most of southeastern Iowa.
