Fishman ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Massachusetts' 6th District. He faced Democrat John Tierney and Republican Richard Tisei in the November general election.
According to the website Daily Kos, this race was one of nine top-ballot 2012 races that contained Libertarian candidates who received more total votes than was the difference between the Democratic winner and the GOP runner-up. In this case, Fishman took in over 13,000 more votes than the number that separated Tierney and Tisei.
