Kinard was running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 9th District. She sought the nomination on the Democratic ticket and was defeated 11th district incumbent Yvette Clarke in the June 26 Democratic primary.[1][2]

Kinard, who is also a minister, formerly worked as Senior Legislative Attorney for the New York City Council.[3] She says she is focused on addressing local concerns of unemployment and education. Kinard wants to ensure government jobs aren't outsourced, and support small businesses. She also says she would fight to bring more education arts funding to New York.[4]

President Barack Obama has backed Clarke.[5] He said that Clarke has worked "to give a voice to the voiceless, whether it was improving educational opportunity for children, expanding access to healthcare for women in need, or helping small businesses expand and add new jobs."[6]
