|U.S. House, New York, District 17|
Carvin is a hedge fund manager and town supervisor for the town of Rye, New York.
Carvin is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. House, representing New York's 17th District. He is seeking the nomination on the Republican and Conservative tickets, and defeated James Russell in the June 26 Republican primary. He will face incumbent Nita Lowey (D) in the November 6, 2012, general election.
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."
For his part, Russell criticized Carvin for voting for Barack Obama for president in 2008, and said Carving is a "liberal millionaire."
A local news source reports, "Carvin cut spending from $4.1 million to $3.3 million in his first year in office." Even so, Carvin diverges from the Republican norm on some issues. Carvin, along with Russell, are pro-choice and favor parental notification. He also says he won't take a "no tax-increases" pledge, and seeks more intense regulations of banks.
