It’s a re-max!

Former Democratic Congressmember Max Rose announced Monday that he is running again for his old seat, after losing it to incumbent Republican Nicole Malliotakis in 2020 following a single term in Washington.

In his campaign launch video, Rose noted that Americans are going through a multitude of simultaneous crises, including COVID-19, inflation and unaffordability, climate change, and gun violence.

He then says that those tasked with representing people’s interests amid crises are instead lying for their own political advantage, shown over footage of the Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol — a clear shot at Malliotakis, who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s election victory based on bogus claims of voter fraud, even as a violent right-wing mob stormed the Capitol to try to overturn the election results.
