After earning her degrees, Hayworth worked as an opthalmologist, both at her own practice and as a partner in the Mount Kisco Medical Group. Hayworth also served as an attending physician at Northern Westchester Hospital and as an Instructor and Assistant Clinical Professor at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.
Hayworth serves on the following committees:
- Financial Services Committee
- Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises
- Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology
- Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations
Hayworth is running for re-election in 2012. Due to New York's redistricting, she is running in the newly redrawn 18th district. She was unopposed in the Republican, Conservative, and Independence party primaries and will face Sean Maloney (D) and Larry Weissmann (Working Families) in the November 6, 2012, general election. Hayworth has since been 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 is expected to tighten the race.
The Cook Political Report has rated the race a tossup.
Hayworth has 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 has raised $2.2 million through June 30th, more than double the $738,382 she raised two years ago at this time. She has $1.5 million in the bank, compared to $775,000 four years ago. Her opponent, Sean Patrick Maloney in comparison has $264,364 in the bank and raised $675,771 through June 30th. Timothy Persico, Maloney’s campaign manager, alleges Hayworth is 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.”
Push for bipartisanship
In the run up to the election, many republicans are trying to show that they are bipartisan and willing to work with Democrats. Hayworth has started to push the point that she has voted with Obama one-third of the time and stating that she has 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 are trying to hold on to their districts with showing themselves to be more bipartisan.
