Mulligan ran for re-election to the Illinois House of Representatives in 2012. Due to redistricting, she ran in the new District 55. Mulligan was found to have 171 signatures less than the required 500 and withdrew her name from the ballot on January 9, 2012, saying she would run as a write-in.[2] She claimed that she handed off her signatures to the Illinois House Republican Organization due to personal issues, and accused them of intentionally leaving them incomplete to remove her.[3] The Organization backed another write-in candidate, Susan Sweeney, who defeated Mulligan in the March 20 primary with over four times the votes necessary for general election ballot status.[4]

Martin J. Moylan was unopposed in the Democratic primary and defeated Susan Sweeney (R) in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.[5][6]
