After incumbent Republican representative Kenny Marchant announced that he would not run for re-election in 2020, Van Duyne quickly announced her bid to succeed Marchant. She is among four Republican women running for Congress who are known as the Conservative Squad, which also includes Nancy Mace, Michelle Fischbach, and Jessica Taylor. Van Duyne's run is endorsed by Donald Trump.
