State GOP Chair Nick Langworthy announces run for Congress
ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York Republican Party Chairman Nick Langworthy announced that he’s running for election in the newly redrawn 23rd Congressional District.
Langworthy’s website said he’s running as a conservative republican. He will run against business owner Richard Moon and former Buffalo School Board member Carl Paladino in the Republic primary.
41-year-old Langworthy has been the Republican chair since 2019. He shared a promotional video for his campaign on Twitter that mentions his relationship with former President Donald Trump.
It’s official, I am running for Congress! Western New York and the Southern Tier deserve a conservative Republican Congressman who is tough enough to take the fight to Joe Biden and the radicals to get real results for taxpayers. #NoDrama #NoDistractions #NY23 pic.twitter.com/X2XeNhkAsF— Nick Langworthy (@NickLangworthy) June 10, 2022
Last week, current 27th District Representative Chris Jacobs announced he would not be running in the 23rd district as expected but would step down after serving out his term.
The new 23rd Congressional District encompasses 7 counties, including Steuben, Allegany, and Cattaraugus Counties.
