Hayes reported extensively on the 2012 presidential elections from Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and many other key Republican primary states. He was the first to report that Mitt Romney was preparing to announce Paul Ryan as his running mate.

Hayes has reported extensively on the attacks on US facilities in Benghazi, Libya and their aftermath, first breaking the news that the Benghazi “talking points” had been rewritten with significant input from top Obama administration officials. Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said of Hayes’ work on Benghazi: “if it doesn’t win the National Magazine Award, the award ought to be repealed.”
