Nan Alison Sutter Hayworth (b. December 14, 1959) is a 2014 Republican, Conservative and Independence Party candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 18th Congressional District of New York.[1]

For much of 2013, Hayworth toured the 18th District in an effort to speak with possible future constituents. On February 5, 2014, Hayworth confirmed that she would seek election to New York's 18th Congressional District. If she gains the Republican nomination, she will face incumbent Sean Maloney in the general election in what will likely be one of the most competitive races in the 2014 election cycle.[2]

Hayworth was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from New York. Hayworth was elected by voters from New York's 19th Congressional District. Due to New York's redistricting, Hayworth ran in the newly redrawn 18th District in 2012. She was defeated by Sean Maloney on November 6, 2012.[3]

Based on an analysis of bill sponsorship by GovTrack, Hayworth was a "centrist Republican."[4]

Hayworth, who was unseated in 2012 by Democratic challenger Sean Maloney in the then-newly drawn 18th District, formed a campaign committee in anticipation of running again in 2014.[11] She filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on April 26, 2013.[12] On February 5, 2014, Hayworth confirmed that she would seek election in the 18th District.[2]

See also: New York's 18th Congressional District elections, 2012

Hayworth lost her re-election bid in 2012. Due to New York's redistricting, she ran in the newly redrawn 18th District.[14] She was unopposed in the Republican, Conservative, and Independence party primaries and was defeated by Sean Maloney (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[15] Hayworth was removed from the Independence ticket by the state appeals court, upholding a ruling by the state Supreme Court that only the names on her petition that were signed were valid. The names printed on the petition were not counted and as a result, Hayworth did not have enough signatures to remain on the Independence ticket. In 2010, she received 5,400 Independence votes. The loss of the Independence votes in the 2012 election was expected to tighten the race.[16] She was defeated by Sean Maloney on November 6, 2012.[17]

The Cook Political Report rated the race a tossup.[18]

Hayworth raised more money in the NY House election than her opponent, a trend shared by 13 other Republicans in contested House races in 2012. She had raised $2.2 million through June 30th, more than double the $738,382 she raised two years ago at this time. She had $1.5 million in the bank, compared to $775,000 four years ago. Her opponent, Sean Patrick Maloney in comparison had $264,364 in the bank and raised $675,771 through June 30, 2012. Timothy Persico, Maloney’s campaign manager, alleged Hayworth was raising her money through special interests-“PACS and corporate lobbyists have sent over a million dollars to Congresswoman Hayworth because she’s worth every penny.”[19]

Push for bipartisanship

In the run up to the election, many Republicans were trying to show that they were bipartisan and willing to work with Democrats. Hayworth had started to push the point that she voted with Obama one-third of the time and stated that she had been in the center of the Republican party since she was elected. In a recent poll conducted by the New York Times and CBS news, results found that nearly 44% of Americans blamed Republicans for the deadlock in Congress. Republicans were trying to hold on to their districts by showing themselves as more bipartisan.[20]

2010

On November 2, 2010, Hayworth was elected to the United States House. She also ran on the Conservative Party and Independence Party tickets. She defeated John J. Hall (D).[21]
