Conway ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Illinois' 7th District. Conway sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket.[3] The signature filing deadline was December 27, 2011, with the primary taking place on March 20, 2012. Incumbent Danny Davis ran for re-election on the Democratic ticket.

Danny K. Davis was endorsed over Conway.[4] Both candidates are similar politically, with Conway even stating in an interview with Austin Weekly News "Politically, we're not that far at all, and most Democrats aren't...Voting-wise, there won't be a difference, but energy-wise and purpose-wise and want-to-do-it-wise, I think that I could make a splash."[5]

According to a March 7th article in the Austin Daily News "Davis has raised roughly $148,000 in this election cycle, and his campaign has about $260,000 in cash on hand, according to the Federal Election Commission. The commission lists no fundraising total for Conway. He estimates, however, raising a few thousand dollars last month."[5]

Incumbent Danny K. Davis defeated Conway in the Democratic primary on March 20, 2012.[1] There was no Republican primary because no candidate filed to run, thereby almost guaranteeing Davis an unopposed race for re-election in the general election on November 6, 2012.
