Kuster ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New Hampshire's 2nd District. She ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. She won the general election on November 6, 2012.

The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in New Hampshire in 2012 as one of the states that could determine whether Democrats retake the House or Republican holds its majority in 2013.[6] New Hampshire ranked 10th on the list.[6]

On September 26, one of Bass' staffers took a video of Kuster in which the staffer pesters Kuster until she takes the camera from him and refuses to return it. She returned the camera moments later, and the video was published by the conservative NH Journal on September 27.[7] She responded by accusing Bass, and Republicans in general, of "political bullying".[8]

Kuster used the video in an email-based fundraising campaign. This campaign is responsible for a substantial part of the $265,000 the campaign raised in the last week of September, capping off the $720,000 Kuster raised in this year's third quarter.[9]
