Pelosi Majority Crumbles


Democrat Tom Suozzi Will Run for New York Governor, Not Reelection





Tom Suozzi (D-NY) announced he is joining the already crowded race for New York governor, challenging Kathy Hochul, who has had less than a year on the job since she was elevated to the position.


“I am running for Governor of NY as a common sense Democrat who gets things done,” Suozzi tweeted Monday morning. “I have the track record, common sense approach to governing and bold new vision to get it done. I can do it, because I’ve done it!”


The congressman who has voted 100 percent of the time on major votes with Pelosi allowing her to pass partisan policies, also represents a largely suburban House district, which could potentially help him in his gubernatorial bid; however, leaving the seat would be a struggle for Democrats to defend without a popular incumbent such as Suozzi. Thus, potentially giving Republicans a likely seat to pick up in New York since Democrats have struggled to find new candidates willing to run for office.
