|U.S. House, New York, District 6|
|New York City Council|
Crowley ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 6th District. She sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket and faced Rory Lancman and Grace Meng, both members of the New York Assembly, and physician Robert Mittman in the June 26 Democratic primary. She was defeated by Meng in the primary.
Elizabeth Crowley's cousin, U.S. Representative and Queens Democratic Party Chairman Joseph Crowley, endorsed Meng over his relative. As a local Democratic leader, the congressman was heavily invested in the race; analysts suggested 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.
Regardless, the party is not expected to lose the seat. Joe Crowley's interest in supporting Meng was more about bolstering the "perceived strengths" of the local Democratic organization, analysts say. Meng did have the cash advantage, as well as the race advantage in a 40-percent Asian district. She was endorsed by The New York Times and EMILY's List, among others.
