Robinson ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent North Carolina's 8th District. Robinson sought the nomination on the Republican ticket. The signature filing deadline for candidates was February 29, 2012. Robinson attempted to unseat incumbent Rep. Larry Kissell (D). Because no candidate received more than 40% of the vote in the Republican primary election, a runoff primary took place. Robinson was eliminated in the May 8, 2012, primary.
The Washington Post listed the House of Representatives elections in North Carolina in 2012 as one of the 10 states that could determine whether Democrats would retake the House or Republicans would hold their majority in 2013. North Carolina was rated 8th on the list.
