For­mer Rep. Tom Suozzi run­ning for old House seat in bid to oust George San­tos

For­mer Demo­c­ra­t­ic New York Rep. Tom Suozzi announced he would be run­ning for his old House seat in New York’s 3rd Con­gres­sion­al Dis­trict in a bid to oust embat­tled Rep. George San­tos (R‑NY) and flip the key seat back in Democ­rats’ favor.
Suozzi launched his cam­paign bid on Tues­day, join­ing a crowd­ed field of Demo­c­ra­t­ic can­di­dates seek­ing to replace San­tos when the seat is up for grabs next Novem­ber. Suozzi rep­re­sent­ed the 3rd Dis­trict from 2016 to 2022, when he opt­ed not to run for reelec­tion and instead ran for New York gov­er­nor. He lost to incum­bent Demo­c­ra­t­ic Gov. Kathy Hochul.
