Special Election In NY Called to Fill GOP Rep. George Santos' Seat - EVOL

In New York’s 3rd Congressional District, which the disgraced former GOP Rep. George Santos previously represented, Democrats went all-in to flip the seat.

Republicans Mazi Pilip, a lower-profile legislator from Nassau County, and former Representative Tom Suozzi, a well-known Democrat in the area who previously represented the district before quitting to run for governor in 2022, ran a close race against one another.

Suozzi has been declared the winner, allowing Democrats to pick up a seat in the U.S. House.

The race on Long Island drew millions of dollars and prominent New York politicians, which experts said is a key battleground for the House’s control later this year and a gauge for messaging on immigration, crime, and other issues.
