‘It’s time for new leadership’: Republican candidate announces congressional campaign to challenge George Santos


As Queens/Long Island Congressman George Santos spent his morning at the Manhattan Courthouse to support former President Donald Trump on April 4, a Republican candidate announced his campaign to challenge Santos in the upcoming primary election. Former war veteran and J.P. Morgan Vice President Kellen Curry has registered to run against Santos in the 2024 Republican primary for New York’s 3rd Congressional District.

After graduating from the United States Air Force Academy in 2009, Curry spent eight years on active duty during the war in Afghanistan. He helped to deliver critical cyber security technology for the military in addition to serving two tours of duty. Curry continues to serve in the Air Force Reserves.
