Crowley is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 6th District. She is seeking the nomination on the Democratic ticket and will face Rory Lancman and Grace Meng, both members of the New York Assembly, and physician Robert Mittman in the June 26 Democratic primary.

Elizabeth Crowley's cousin, U.S. Representative and Queens Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Crowley, has endorsed Meng over his relative. As a local Democratic leader, the congressman is heavily invested in the race; analysts suggest he would benefit from backing a winner after he endorsed a candidate in 2010 who went on to lose to Republican Bob Turner in an upset.[1]

Regardless of who wins the Democratic nomination in the 6th this year, however, the party is not expected to lose the seat. Joe Crowley's interest in supporting Meng is more about bolstering the "perceived strengths" of the local Democratic organization, analysts say.[1] Meng does have the cash advantage, as well as the race advantage in a 40-percent Asian district. She has also been endorsed by The New York Times and EMILY's List,[1] among others.[2]

Lancman is making a race of it, however. He has been endorsed by the New York Daily News and the Queens Chronicle, and is strongly pursuing the Jewish vote.[1] He and Meng have also been involved in some intense campaigning, each sharply criticizing the other.[3][4] Lancman sent out a mass mailing decrying Meng's and Crowley's stances on Israel and national defense.[4]

Elizabeth Crowley has mostly stayed out of attack mode, but recently released an ad accusing Lancman of being too involved in the redistricting process and benefiting himself with the redrawn lines.[5]
