Williams was running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 13th District. He sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket. He faced incumbent Charles Rangel, Adriano Espaillat, Craig Schley, and Joyce Johnson in the June 26 Democratic primary. The general election is November 6, 2012.[6] Rangel won the Democratic primary and advances to the general election on November 6th, 2012.[7]
