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.

The New York Times dubbed the race between Addabbo and Ulrich, "one of the tightest and most expensive in the state, ratcheted up by an influx of outside dollars and mailers from groups eager to swing the district." The Republican party has made this seat a priority to win.[2]
