Wilcox ran in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent Arizona's 7th District. Wilcox was defeated by Ruben Gallego in the primary on August 26, 2014.[3]

Wilcox issued a challenge of primary opponent Ruben Gallego's nomination in June 2014. She stated, "I am not trying to push anyone off the ballot, and I am not hiding behind lawsuits filed by others. I am openly calling for Mr. Marinelarena or Mr. Marinelarena Gallego to put his legal surname, including his given name Marinelarena, on the ballot, so everyone has the chance to learn about his experiences and who he really is." Wilcox later withdrew the challenge, and Gallego will appear on the primary ballot.[4]
