Blanchard was defeated by Republican David Joyce in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing Ohio's 14th District. Blanchard was the only Democrat in the primary on March 6, 2012, looking to unseat incumbent Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R).

LaTourette announced his retirement on July 31, 2012, delaying the announcement long enough to prevent the need for a special election to fill the 14th District seat. David Joyce replaced him and defeated Blanchard in the general election.[2][3]

The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in Ohio in 2012 as 1 of the 10 states that could determine whether Democrats retake the House or Republicans will holds its majority in 2013.[4] Ohio tied with Pennsylvania for 9th on the list.[4]
