Doheny is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 21st District. He is seeking the nomination on the Republican ticket[2] and defeated recent seminary graduate Kellie Greene in the June 26 Republican primary.[3][1] The winner will take on Democratic incumbent Bill Owens in the general election.

In 2010, Doheny was just under 2,000 votes short of beating Owens.[4]

Greene, an international business consultant,[5] said local Republican organizations have been dismissive of her campaign. The primary, she said, should not "be the will of the party. It’s supposed to be the will of the people." Several county Republican chairman responded, one saying that Greene had not shown a strong enough campaign, and another saying she did not send the campaign literature he had offered to distribute for her.[6]

On the issues, Doheny and Greene had their disagreements. Greene favors a flat tax, while Doheny says such a tax would be best in theory, in practice he would rather work toward "a flatter, simpler, fairer tax system" with no loopholes.[5] Regarding immigration, Doheny supports expanding H2A guest-worker visa programs, while Greene says "We don't have jobs for our own people."

Due to scheduling difficulties, the two candidates were unable to meet for a debate. Greene blamed the latest difficulty on Doheny's camp.[7]
