Tom Suozzi announces bid to reclaim his old seat from George Santos

Published Oct. 10, 2023

Democratic former Rep. Tom Suozzi announced Tuesday he would join the crowded race for scandal-plagued Rep. George Santos’ Long Island-based House seat in 2024.

Suozzi repped the 3rd Congressional District from 2017 to 2023. He gave up the seat to run for governor, and was soundly beaten by incumbent Kathy Hochul in the Democratic primary.

“The madness in Washington, DC, and the absurdity of George Santos remaining in the United States Congress is obvious to everyone,” Suozzi said in a statement.

“I’ve never sat on the sidelines. From the cost-of-living to immigration, crime, climate change, combating terrorism in the Middle East and globally, and simply helping people, we need more common sense and compassion and less chaos and senseless fighting.”

Suozzi, 61, intends to hold a formal campaign kickoff after the Nov. 7 off-year elections in the Empire State.
