Little ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New Jersey's 6th District. She defeated Ernesto Cullari in the June 5 Republican primary and will face Democratic incumbent Frank Pallone in the November general election.[3][4]

Despite the new shape of New Jersey's 6th congressional district, this year's race strongly resembled the match-up two years ago between Little and Democratic incumbent Frank Pallone. In the redistricting, the 6th district was shifted to the east, but maintained its political demographics: the ratio of registered Democrats to Republicans is nearly 3 to 1. Despite tea-party support, Little lost to Pallone by 11 points in 2010.[5]
