Tyner is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 19th District. He is seeking the nomination on the Democratic ticket[2] and will face former federal prosecutor Julian Schreibman in the June 26 Democratic primary.[1]

The two agree on many issues. Tyner has made opposition to hydrofracking -- a controversial method of oil and natural gas recovery -- a main theme of his campaign, but Schreibman also says he opposes the technique "100%."[3] Both candidates also have said they will not be yes-men for President Barack Obama.[3] And each has a similar goal of protecting Social Security.[1] On health care, there is some differentiation, as Tyner calls for a single-payer system, while Schreibman supports "universal access to health care" and favors the health care legislation already passed and known as "Obamacare."[4]

Schreibman has been endorsed by retiring Representative Maurice Hinchey,[1] and argues that he is the more electable candidate[4] in the Republican-leaning district.[5] He also says he has a greater fundraising capability, which would help battle "an avalanche of unregulated corporate money" in the general election.[6]

But Tyner is quick to criticize the sources of Schreibman's campaign contributions as coming from "investors."[3] He also highlights his own history of being elected to his county seat despite being in a heavily Republican area, while Schreibman's stint as county Democratic chairman saw party losses in the state Legislature.[6]

The race could go either way, particularly with extremely low voter turnout expected.[4]
