Tyner ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 19th District. He sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket[3] and lost to former federal prosecutor Julian Schreibman in the Democratic primary on June 26, 2012.[1][2]

The two agreed on many issues. Tyner made opposition to hydrofracking -- a controversial method of oil and natural gas recovery -- a main theme of his campaign, but Schreibman also said he opposes the technique "100%."[4] Both candidates also have said they will not be yes-men for President Barack Obama.[4] And each had the similar goal of protecting Social Security.[2] On health care, there was some differentiation, as Tyner called for a single-payer system, while Schreibman supported "universal access to health care" and favored the health care legislation already passed and known as "Obamacare."[5]

Schreibman was endorsed by retiring Representative Maurice Hinchey,[2] and argued that he was the more electable candidate[5] in the Republican-leaning district.[6] He also said he has a greater fundraising capability, which would help battle "an avalanche of unregulated corporate money" in the general election.[7]

Tyner was quick to criticize the sources of Schreibman's campaign contributions as coming from "investors."[4] He also highlighted 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.[7]
