Elections

2014

See also: New York's 18th congressional district elections, 2014

Maloney is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.[4]

2012

See also: New York's 18th congressional district elections, 2012

Maloney ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 18th District. He defeated Rich Becker, Matt Alexander, Tom Wilson, and Duane Jackson in the Democratic primary. He will face incumbent Nan Hayworth (R) and Larry Weissmann (Working Families) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[5]

According to The New York Times, cardiologist and Cortlandt town council member[6] Rich Becker and former Bill Clinton aide Maloney were the frontrunners. The Times endorsed Becker, based on the paper's concerns about Maloney's handling of an investigation of Eliot Spitzer.[7] Maloney, unsurprisingly, gained the endorsement of his former boss, Bill Clinton,[7] along with the nod from major unions in the state, including the New York State United Teachers, the state AFL-CIO, and some large SEIU locals.[8]

Wrappinger Falls Mayor Matt Alexander,[9] Tuxedo Park Mayor Tom Wilson,[10] and local hero Duane Jackson also ran.[8] Jackson, a street vendor, thwarted a bomb attempt in Times Square.[8]

Maloney stressed his endorsements, as well as his fundraising advantage over the rest of the Democratic candidates -- the funding, he says, will be necessary to unseat Hayworth in the general. Alexander, on the other hand, said that money will pour in to whoever opposes Hayworth.[11]

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.”[12]
