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 has $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 30th.  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.<ref>[http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-07-31/republicans-outraising-democratic-rivals-in-house-races.html “Republicans Outraising Democratic Rivals In House Races” Bloomberg.com Accessed August 2, 2012.]</ref>

====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.<ref>[http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/16/us/politics/some-republicans-try-out-a-new-campaign-theme-bipartisanship.html?_r=2ref=politics& ''The New York Times'', "Some Republicans Try Out a New Campaign Theme: Bipartisanship," September 15, 2012]</ref>

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.[9] She filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on April 26, 2013.[10]

2012

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.[11] She was unopposed in the Republican, Conservative, and Independence party primaries and was defeated by Sean Maloney (D) in the November 6, 2012, general election.[12] 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.[13] She was defeated by Sean Maloney on November 6, 2012.[14]

The Cook Political Report rated the race a tossup.[15]

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 has $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 30th. 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.”[16]

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.[17]

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).[18]
