McCoy ran for the U.S. House representing the 1st Congressional District of South Carolina. The election was held to replace Tim Scott, who was appointed to fill Jim DeMint's vacant seat in the U.S. Senate. McCoy was defeated in the Republican primary against Keith Blandford, Curtis Bostic, Ric Bryant, Larry Grooms, Jonathan Hoffman, Jeff King, John Kuhn, Tim Larkin, Chip Limehouse, Elizabeth Moffly, Ray Nash, Andy Patrick, Shawn Pinkston, Mark Sanford and Teddy Turner on March 19, 2013.
Former Governor Mark Sanford (R) won the primary and the general election. He was considered the front runner due to name recognition from his governorship and his previous tenure in this seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, which he held for three terms prior to being elected governor. and the fact that he had $120,000 in an old campaign account. His ability to fundraise quickly and his $120,000 remaining in an account from a previous campaign provided a financial advantage in the race as well. The district leans Republican. The last Democratic candidate elected was Mendel Jackson Davis in 1978.

The Palmetto Liberty PAC Scorecard
The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee, a conservative pro-limited government think tank in South Carolina, releases its Scorecard for South Carolina Representatives and Senators once a year. The Scorecard gives each a legislator a score based on how they voted in the two-year legislative term prior to the election on specific issues which the Palametto Liberty PAC thought were anti-limited government. "Most of the votes shown on the score card are votes that we lost. Now we can identify the Legislators that caused us to lose these votes. These Legislators are the ones who need to be replaced if we are to achieve the vision of having the most free state in the nation."
Peter McCoy received a score of 20% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 64th out of all 124 South Carolina House of Representatives members. His score was followed by representatives Joseph McEachern (20%), Chris Murphy (20%), and James Neal (20%).
McCoy was married in 2010 to Jennifer Blanchard.
