Landwehr ran in the 2012 election for Kansas State Senate District 25. Redistricting put her into a contentious faceoff against fellow Wichitan incumbent Jean Schodorf in the August 7 Republican primary. During the Senate's redistricting process, Schodorf herself proposed an amendment to what ultimately became the final district map, which put the two together in the 25th District.
After the redistricting plan was approved, Landwehr criticized Schodorf for the late proposal given that she supported the original plan, saying, “I believe we need proactive public servants like myself who are more concerned about helping the people find a job than a senator trying to keep her own job.” Schodorf later put out a press release quoting Landwehr testifying to the Senate Redistricting Committee that she preferred to be in a district of affluent white voters. While the quote was not in doubt, Landwehr said her statement was meant to oppose a by-then-rejected map that she believed would hurt minority and low-income voters.
Landwehr dropped her bid on June 11, 2012.
