In 2010, the California Libertarian Party ran two candidates for U.S. House who have unambiguously Hispanic surnames. They are Edward Gonzalez, an elementary school director in San Jose; and Carlos A. Rodriguez, an immigration lawyer in San Fernando. Each had opponents from both major parties. Gonzalez, running in the 16th district, polled 7.88%. Rodriguez, running in the 28th district, polled 8.05%.
These two showings are the highest percentages received by California Libertarian candidates for U.S. House (excluding races in which only one major party ran anyone) since 1992.
