Jackson ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Virginia. He was seeking the nomination on the Republican ticket[4] and faced George Allen, Jamie Radtke, and Bob Marshall in the June 12, 2012, primary. Jackson was defeated by George Allen in the Republican primary on June 12, 2012.[1]

Allen is considered the front-runner, as he has outraised his Republican challengers and has the benefit of greater name recognition. Jackson is running to the right of Allen, although all four candidates agree on most issues.[5]

The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012 detailing the 8 races in the Senate in 2012 that would impact the political fate of which party ended up with control in 2013.[6] The seat rated a toss-up that Sabato's Crystal Ball believed was most likely to depend on the outcome of the Presidential election in November is the Senate seat in Virginia.[6] According to the article, "outcome of this race will largely be determined by which party claims Virginia’s 13 electoral votes in November."[6]
