He sought the nomination on the Republican and Conservative tickets, and defeated James Russell in the June 26 Republican primary. He lost to 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."

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.
