Elections

2012

See also: New York's 27th congressional district elections, 2012

Collins won election in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 27th District.[2] He defeated David Bellavia in the June 26, 2012, Republican primary and then defeated incumbent Kathy Hochul (D) and Megan Lavin (I) in the November 6, 2012, general election.[3][4]

Bellavia is an Iraq War veteran and Tea Party activist, and Collins is a former county legislator.[1] Bellavia sought to win as a more conservative candidate than Collins. He pointed out that the former Erie County Executive praised incoming federal stimulus funding when he was in office.[5] Collins, however, did receive the Conservative Party endorsement. State Party Chairman Michael Long commented: "He had a proven record.... Collins would be more competitive against the congresswoman."[6]

According to the Buffalo News, Bellavia was the underdog and rarely recognized by Collins.[7] Bellavia, who wrote a book and subsequently sold the movie rights about his experiences in Iraq, said in taking on Collins he took on the "Erie County (political) machine."[7]

Both candidates were largely self-funded, with Collins self-funding $250,000 and Bellavia $45,000. Reports also show that Collins raised another $5,750, and Bellavia raised $50,000 in addition to his own contribution.[8]
