Gulleson lost to Republican Kevin Cramer in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing North Dakota At-large district. Gulleson ran unopposed in the Democratic primary June 12, 2012. The general election was November 6, 2012.[1]

According to the Washington Post, North Dakota was a battleground district in 2012, with incumbent Rick Berg running for Senate and Republicans fighting in the primary. Democrat Pam Gulleson vastly out-raised the Republican candidates, and had a "fighting chance" in a conservative state.[2]
