Kicinski ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 22nd District. He sought the nomination on the Republican ticket and lost to incumbent Richard Hanna in the June 26 Republican primary.[2]

Hanna had the obvious advantage of being an incumbent, along with having campaign funds far exceeding those of any competitors.[4]

Kicinski, who founded a local Tea Party group, said Hanna hadn't made good on his campaign promises to reduce the budget and uphold the debt limit.[3] Kicinski supported more immediate changes, while Hanna has worked toward 20- or 30-year plans.[3] Kicinski also pledged not to raise the debt ceiling, while he said Hanna voted three times to raise the debt ceiling.[5]

Neither candidate supported federal subsidies for wind energy, and both supported hydrofracking, a controversial method of extracting oil and natural gas, although Kicinski said he would only support it if done responsibly. Both opposed the nationalized health care bill known as Obamacare, but Hanna saw some good parts of the bill, particularly those requiring coverage for pre-existing conditions.[3]

Kicinski was also endorsed by two state pro-life groups.[6][7] Hanna, who was backed by the Conservative Party in his 2010 takeover of a Democratic-held seat, has been passed over by the Conservatives this year due to his moderate voting record. "I think both parties are owned by their extremes.... So, someplace the solutions are going to come out of that 70, 80 percent of people who don't fit those outer places," he said.[8]
