Said ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Washington's 4th District. He sought the nomination as a Democrat and faced incumbent Doc Hastings (R), Mary Baechler (D), and Jamie Wheeler (R) in the August 7 primary.[2] The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, were on the general election ballot.[3] He was defeated in the August 7, 2012, primary.[4]


Republican incumbent Doc Hastings won with almost 68% of the vote in 2010.

As of late July, Hastings had a huge lead in fundraising.[5] Physician Said and tea party activist Wheeler had under $5,000 each, with professional community organizer Baechler just exceeding that in the last reporting period.[5]

On the issues, Hastings hd a record of supporting budget cuts and opposing the Affordable Care Act. Wheeler wanted to defund several major federal agencies. Palestinian-born Said focused on foreign policy issues, wanting a nuclear-free Middle East. Baechler wanted to defend Social Security and Medicare programs.[5]

The district Democratic Party backed Baechler.[5]
