Fidler was defeated by David Storobin (R) in the March 20, 2012 special election. Fidler also ran on the Independence Party ticket. Storobin ialso ran on the Conservative Party ticket.[2]

Note: After a contested result, legal wrangling, and a hand recount, Fidler conceded the election to David Storobin (R) on May 31. The hand recount revealed that Storobin had won by approximately 15 votes. During the legal process, each side accused the other of vote fraud, and a significant number of absentee ballots were disputed. On May 14, the Board of Elections decided to recount the votes by hand.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
