Murphy ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 11th District. He sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket. He was unopposed in the primary on June 26th, 2012, and faced incumbent Michael Grimm (R) and Henry Bardel (G) in the general election on November 6, 2012.

Challenge to opponent

Murphy's opponent, incumbent Michael Grimm, initially attempted to file as an Independence Party candidate as well as Republican, but Murphy's objection to Grimm's petition signatures successfully knocked Grimm from that line. Grimm remained on the ballot as a Republican, and the Independence Party line was blank on the ballot.[3] Grimm defeated Murphy in the general election.[1]
