Becker is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 4th District. He sought the nomination on the Republican and Conservative Party tickets and defeated Frank Scaturro in the June 26 Republican primary.[2][3]

As a 10-term county legislator, Becker has the backing of the Nassau County Republicans and the Conservative Party over Scaturro. Both candidates agree on the need to repeal Obamacare, the need to support Israel, and the need to curtail entitlement programs.[1]

Becker defeated Scaturro in the Republican primary in 2010.[4] Both have hopes for a defeating McCarthy in the general election, with the redrawn district possibly being more favorable to Republicans this year.[5]


On November 2, 2010, Becker lost to incumbent Carolyn McCarthy (D).[6]
