Bayside native launches campaign for Democratic nomination for Santos’ congressional seat


Bayside native and former counsel to local leaders Steve Behar has launched his campaign for the Democratic nomination of the NY-03 Congressional seat. He is the latest candidate to throw his hat into the ring in an attempt to unseat the controversial incumbent Congressman George Santos.

Behar has an extensive history in politics and public service. He served as the campaign manager for James Sanders Jr. when he ran for state Senate back in 2012. After Sanders won the election, Behar served as his counsel from 2013-14.
