18th Congressional District

First round, Hayworth


Republican Nan Hayworth was victorious over Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney in the Independence Party primary election held Tuesday, June 24. The primary saw about 6 percent of Independence Party voters go to the polls, giving Ms. Hayworth a 132-vote victory — 732-640.

As a result, Ms. Hayworth will run on the Republican Party ticket and on the Independence Party line in the race for the 18th Congressional District. The district includes northeastern Westchester County, including Bedford and Pound Ridge, as well as all of Orange and Putnam counties and parts of southern Dutchess County. The election will take place Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Since Ms. Hayworth was unopposed on the Republican Party line, as was Mr. Maloney on the Democratic Party ticket, neither faced an additional primary. Mr. Maloney will also appear on the Working Families Party ballot line in November.

Tuesday’s primary breakdown by county showed Ms. Hayworth won in all the county Independence Party primaries but one, Orange County, where the vote was 381-47 in favor of Mr. Maloney. The totals in other counties in the 18th Congressional District include Westchester, where Ms. Hayworth won 75-50. In Putnam County, 113 voters selected Ms. Hayworth and 89 voted for Mr. Maloney. Dutchess County saw a total turnout of 327 voters, with Ms. Hayworth winning 197-130.

On Wednesday, Ms. Hayworth acknowledged that the turnout was low. “This sort of election is one of the most challenging you can participate in,” she said. “We had tremendous grass-roots support on the ground in order to reach and motivate people. We were blessed.”

Ms. Hayworth said she was able to talk to hundreds of voters and her message resonated. “I am there to help build our Hudson Valley economy from Main Street on up,” she said. “I will be there to make sure that health care makes sense. The hardships caused by the Affordable Care Act are real.”

Ms. Hayworth said she would like to see the Affordable Care Act replaced, but if that is not possible, as a congresswoman she would work to make it better. “There are a lot of structural flaws in the act, and I think it would be better for us to take a fresh approach,” Ms. Hayworth said. “But whatever we need to do pragmatically to solve problems and make progress, I am there to do.”

She said it was her idea to provide great health care for everyone.

Ms. Hayworth said that her positive, hopeful message of bringing new businesses and new prosperity to the Hudson Valley was appreciated by those she met while campaigning.

When asked about the reasons for her loss to Mr. Maloney in the 2012 election, she said that Hurricane Sandy, striking the area in late October just days before the election, caused “a crisis mentality.”

“The storm, plus straight-ticket voting, caused a close election, but it didn’t break our way,” she said. “But we are doing a tremendous amount of groundwork, and I will listen to everybody and take their needs to heart.”

The district is not the same district that gave her a victory in 2010. After federal redistricting, in 2012, Ms. Hayworth chose to run in the 18th rather than the 19th District. She lost to Maloney by 3.7 percent of the vote with a slight Republican margin. As of November 2013, the district had a slightly higher enrollment advantage for Democrats, by about 2 percent.

“Congratulations to Congresswoman Hayworth on running a good race, and I look forward to a debate about our visions for the country this fall,” Mr. Maloney said in a statement issued Wednesday. “I’m going to wake up tomorrow morning and keep putting points on the board for my hardworking Hudson Valley neighbors. The best politics is doing my job and getting results by creating good-paying jobs here at home, reducing taxes for middle-class families and small businesses, cutting wasteful spending and protecting Medicare and Social Security.”

Mr. Maloney’s spokeswoman Stephanie Formas said that Mr. Maloney represents all the people in his district. He was voted among the most centrist members of the House, according to an analysis of the 2013 votes by Congressional Quarterly, she said in an email. He was ranked number seven among maverick House Democrats.

In the same email, she said that Roll Call, a congressional newsletter, had written that the 18th District is “safe” for Democrats.

This congressional election could be more expensive than the 2012 election, which saw over $10 million spent, according to the Federal Election Commission. Ms. Hayworth spent $3.3 million and Mr. Maloney spent $2.2 million.
