Ulrich ran in the 2012 election for New York State Senate District 15. He defeated Juan D. Reyes in the Republican primary on September 13, 2012. He also defeated Joseph Tiraco in the Independence Party primary. Ulrich was defeated by incumbent Joseph Addabbo (D) in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
