Becker ran 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.[3][4] Becker lost to incumbent Carolyn McCarthy (D) in the general election.

As a 10-term county legislator, Becker had 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.[2]

Becker defeated Scaturro in the Republican primary in 2010.[5] Both hoped to McCarthy in the general election, with the redrawn district possibly being more favorable to Republicans in 2012.[6]
