Carvin ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 17th District. He sought the nomination on the Republican and Conservative tickets, and defeated James Russell in the June 26 Republican primary.[5] He lost to incumbent Nita Lowey (D) in the general election on November 6, 2012.[1]

U.S. Representative Bob Turner endorsed Carvin over Russell, stating that Russell is an "extremist" "who has been categorically disavowed by Republican and Conservative leaders for what has widely been deemed White Separatist and anti-Semitic views."[6]

For his part, Russell criticized Carvin for voting for Barack Obama for president in 2008, and said Carving is a "liberal millionaire."[2]

A local news source reported, "Carvin cut spending from $4.1 million to $3.3 million in his first year in office."[2] Even so, Carvin diverged from the Republican norm on some issues. Carvin, along with Russell, was pro-choice and favor parental notification. He also said he won't take a "no tax-increases" pledge, and sought more intense regulations of banks.[2]
