Schreibman is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 19 District. He is seeking the nomination on the Democratic and Working Families Party tickets. He defeated Dutchess County legislator Joel Tyner in the Democratic primary.[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%."[3] Both candidates also have said they will not be yes-men for President Barack Obama.[3] 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."[4]

Schreibman has been endorsed by retiring Representative Maurice Hinchey,[2] and argued that he was the more electable candidate[4] in the Republican-leaning district.[5] He also said he has a greater fundraising capability, which would help battle "an avalanche of unregulated corporate money" in the general election.[6]

But Tyner was quick to criticize the sources of Schreibman's campaign contributions as coming from "investors."[3] 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.[6]
