Max Rose: Former representative to run for House seat in New York he lost in 2020



“I’m running for Congress in #NY11 because I can’t sit by while Republicans tear us apart just to hold onto power,” Rose wrote on Twitter. “The America we believe in is possible – one that is safe, affordable and fair. All we need are leaders willing to risk it all to fight for it.”

Rose won his House seat in 2018 but lost to Malliotakis the following cycle.

In response to his announcement, Malliotakis defended her record and sought to tie Rose to national Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden.

“As a Member of Congress, I have spent everyday fighting for my constituents, serving as their voice for commonsense leadership and holding the Biden Administration accountable,” Malliotakis said in a statement. “I am extremely confident that voters will support my record and once again reject Max Rose, Nancy Pelosi and their socialist agenda. Max Rose, you will be a two-time loser.”
