|U.S. House, New Hampshire, District 1|
Brendan Kelly on "Non-Functioning Government."
Kelly ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent New Hampshire's 1st District. He ran as a Libertarian and faced Carol Shea-Porter (D) and incumbent Frank Guinta (R) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
According to the website Daily Kos, this race was one of nine top-ballot 2012 races that contained Libertarian candidates who received more total votes than was the difference between the Democratic winner and the GOP runner-up. In this case, Kelly took in over 2,000 more votes than the number that separated Shea-Porter and Guinta.
