Shaffer ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent North Carolina's 3rd District. Shaffer sought the nomination on the Republican ticket. The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run was February 29, 2012. Dulin faced Dan Barry, Andy Dulin, Ken Leonczyk, Jim Pendergraph, Robert Pittenger, Michael Steinberg, Jon Gauthier, Edwin Peacock, and Ric Killian in the May 8, 2012 Republican primary.
Because no candidate received more than 40% of the vote in the Republican primary election on May 8, 2012, a runoff primary took place. Shaffer was eliminated in the May 8, 2012, primary.
The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in North Carolina in 2012 as 1 of the 10 states that could have determined whether Democrats would retake the House or if Republicans would hold their majority in 2013. North Carolina was rated 8th on the list.
The primary took place on May 8, 2012.
