Campaign themes

2012

Madigan said he chose to run against Brian Higgins because the incumbent Democrat "ignores what's happening here" in Buffalo's economically disadvantaged East Side. He says education is key, along with lower taxes and reduced regulations in order to help the area's competitiveness.[3]

Elections

2012

See also: New York's 26th congressional district elections, 2012

Madigan ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 26th District. He was unopposed in the Republican, Conservative, and Independence Party primaries[4] and faced incumbent Brian Higgins (D) in the November 6, 2012, general election.[5] Higgins won.[1]

With redistricting making the district even more solidly Democratic,[6] Madigan admitted that he would be at a disadvantage heading into the general election. However, he said he was inspired to run because he wanted to improve Buffalo's dismal education conditions. Madigan considered incumbent Higgins to have ignored the city's poverty and underperforming school system.[7]
