Newman is running for re-election in the 2012 election for Missouri House of Representatives, District 87. Newman defeated incumbent Susan Carlson in the August 7 primary election. She defeated Carlson again on September 24 in a new election per a judicial order.[2] She ran unopposed in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.[3][4]

On August 28, 2012, a St. Louis County judge ordered a new election between Newman and Carlson. Although the results of the first primary awarded Newman the nomination by a single vote, it was later discovered that workers at a polling station handed out over one hundred incorrect ballots. Approximately one-third of the improper ballots were given to citizens voting a Democratic ballot.[2]
