Koppelman ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing North Dakota At-large district.[2]He was defeated by Kevin Cramer in the Republican primary, which took place on June 12, 2011.

According to the Washington Post, North Dakota is a battleground state in 2012, with incumbent Rick Berg (R) running for Senate and Republicans duking it out in the primary. Democrat Pat Gulleson is vastly out-raising the Republican candidates, and has a "fighting chance" in a conservative state.[3]

North Dakota Legislative Review

See also: North Dakota Policy Council: North Dakota Legislative Review

The North Dakota Policy Council, a North Dakota-based nonprofit research organization which describes itself as "liberty-based", published the North Dakota Legislative Review, a comprehensive report on how state legislators voted during the 2011 legislative session. The scorecard seeks to show how North Dakota legislators voted on the principles the Council seeks to promote. The Council recorded and scored votes on both spending bills and policy bills, and awarded points accordingly. Policy issues voted upon included income tax cuts, pension reform, and government transparency. On spending legislation, the Council accorded a percentage score based on how much spending the legislator voted against. On policy legislation, scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Council.[9] Koppelman received a score of 81.08% on policy legislation and voted against 15.49% of state spending. Koppelman was ranked 14th on policy and 13th on spending, out of 94 House members evaluated for the study.[10]
