Salud Carbajal Campaign
In 2015, Carbajal announced to run for the seat of the 24th district, after incumbent Democrat Lois Capps announced her retirement. Carbajal was seen as one of the two Democratic frontrunners in the open primary, alongside Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, and was rivaled by Republican frontrunners Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, and small businessman and former Congressional aide Justin Fareed. The primary field consisted of 4 Democrats, 3 Republicans, and 2 independent candidates.
In the primary elections on June 7, he ultimately came in first, with 31.9% of the vote. This was amounting to 66,402 total popular votes. The runner-up was Fareed, who received 20.5% (42,521 votes). In the general election on November 8, Carbajal received roughly 53.4% of the total vote over Fareed’s 46.6%. This amounted to a popular vote margin of about 21,000 votes.

Salud Carbajal for Congress
The morale of U.S. Rep. Carbajal and his Democratic colleagues may be high right now given their fighting chance of taking back the U.S. House of Representatives. But the first-termer says he’s less preoccupied with what happens on the national level and more focused on establishing his office and “just doing my job.” He’s hoping that prospect will continue beyond 2018 as he campaigns against two Republican challengers — Santa Barbara businessman Justin Fareed, who lost to Carbajal by less than 7 percentage points in 2016, and Morro Bay engineer Michael Erin Woody — leading up to Tuesday’s primary election.
The top two candidates face off again in November. Carbajal, 53, has been spending his free time campaigning in his district and stopped by The Tribune on Wednesday to talk about the election and his first year and a half in Congress. The incumbent and only Democrat on the ballot, Carbajal has reason to be optimistic about making it to the general election, but given the historically low mid-term turnout, he said he’s “not taking anything for granted.”
Salud Carbajal Endorsement
Keep in mind that ratings done by special interest groups often do not represent a non-partisan stance. In addition, some groups select votes that tend to favor members of one political party over another, rather than choosing votes based solely on issues and concerns. Nevertheless, they can be invaluable in showing where an incumbent has stood on a series of votes in the past one or two years, especially when ratings by groups on all sides of an issue are compared.
