Santos Challenges LaLota to GOP Primary in East End Congressional Race

George Santos, the infamously resume-fabricating ex-congressman who was expelled after being arrested on federal fraud charges last year, declared Thursday that he wants to represent the East End in Congress.

The announcement, which comes after Santos said he would not seek elected office again, sets up a potential GOP primary between him and U.S.Rep. Nick LaLota (R-Rocky Point), who has three Democratic candidates running for a chance to challenge him in the November general elections.
