Early life and education

Carbajal was born in Moroleón, Mexico, in 1964[4][5] and immigrated to the United States, initially to Arizona,[6] later settling in Oxnard, California, with his family, where his father was a farmworker.[7]

Early political career

Carbajal served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve for eight years, including during the Gulf War, although he did not leave the contiguous United States.

Elections

2016

In 2015, Carbajal announced his intention to run for the 24th district after incumbent Lois Capps announced her retirement. Carbajal was seen as one of the two Democratic front-runners in the open primary, alongside Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, and was rivaled by Republican front-runners Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian and small businessman and former Congressional aide Justin Fareed. The primary field consisted of four Democrats, three Republicans, and two independent candidates.

In the June 7 primary, Carbajal came in first, with 66,402 votes (31.9%). The runner-up was Fareed, who received 42,521 (20.5%).

In the November 8 general election, Carbajal received 53.4% of the vote to Fareed's 46.6%, a popular vote margin of about 21,000.[11]

2018

Carbajal was reelected over Republican challenger Fareed with 58.6% of the vote.[12][13]

2020

Carbajal was reelected to a third term over Republican challenger Andy Caldwell, a nonprofit executive,[14] with 58.7% of the vote.[15][16]
