Kovach is running in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent New Jersey's 7th District. Kovach ran uncontested for the Democratic nomination in the primary on June 3, 2014. The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

Petition Controversy

Although she had obtained the requisite 200 signatures and filed to run in the primary, Kovach was not included in the initial list of candidates put out by the state Division of Elections. The division did not accept a number of the signatures because the person who had obtained them did not reside in the district. Susan Scarola, an administrative law judge, overturned the ruling in light of another case in which state Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson ruled it unconstitutional to require that the people collecting petitions be from the candidate's district. Unless the decision is overruled by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, Kovach will be on the ballot for June's primary election.[4]
