Yvette D. Clarke
Candidates wishing to run were required to file by the signature filing deadline April 16, 2012. On January 27, 2012, Judge Gary Sharpe moved the primary date from September 11, 2012 to June 26, 2012 in order to allow for sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Yvette D. Clarke (D), who was first elected to the House in 2006. Due to redistricting, Clarke will run in the new 9th district, and 13th district incumbent Michael Grimm will run in the new 11th.
