Barry's candidacy was labeled "On the Radar" by the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Young Gun's Program.
Barry ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent North Carolina's 9th District. Barry was defeated by Robert Pittenger in the Republican primary on May 8, 2012. Because no candidate received more than 40% of the vote in the Republican primary election, a runoff primary took place.
The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in North Carolina in 2012 as one of the 10 states that could determine whether Democrats would retake the House or Republicans would hold their majority in 2013. North Carolina was rated 8th on the list.
The primary took place on May 8, 2012.
AdsIn April 2012, Barry released a 30-second TV ad titled "Blueprint for North Carolina."
