The United States presidential election of 2012 was the 57th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. The 2012 election was a contest between President McMurray and former Senator Bayh, it has the distinction of being one of the closest in American history. The Democratic nominee, former Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, and his running mate, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, lost to the Republican nominee, President Bud McMurray, and Vice President John Boyer.

As the incumbent president, McMurray secured the Republican nomination with no serious opposition and the Democratic party nominated Evan Bayh with little serious opposition.

The campaigns focused heavily on domestic issues: debate centered largely around sound responses to the Great Recession in terms of economic recovery and job creation. Other issues included long-term federal budget issues, the future of social insurance programs, and the healthcare apparatus. Foreign policy was also discussed including the phase-out of the Naziristan Provisional Government in 2014, the size of and spending on the military, and appropriate counteractions to terrorism.
