Max Rose plants the seeds for a return to Congress

Max Rose is officially plotting a comeback bid.

The Staten Island Democrat is preparing to launch a rematch as soon as this fall against GOP Rep. Nicole Malliotakis ó and Rose may get a leg up, given the seat will likely become far more favorable in redistricting. Itís a rare spot of optimism for House Democrats in the uphill battle to keep their majority.

The 34-year old Army veteran was one of 13 House Democrats who fell to GOP challengers in the 2020 election, which was brutal for down-ballot candidates. Rose would be the second of those to formally declare another campaign, while half a dozen more continue to mull another run.

Rose has begun hiring a campaign team since leaving his post on President Joe Bidenís Covid task force in June, as well as reaching out to supporters in anticipation of another run, according to sources close to the former congressman.

2. Summarized here correctly? I'm not there.

'Rose lost to Malliotakis in November by 6 points after she aggressively attacked him as anti-police for attending a Black Lives Matter protest that was held amid a nationwide reckoning over racial justice. The cop-heavy New York district favored former President Donald Trump in both 2016 and 2020.

But that is likely about to change. Democrats are in control of redistricting in the state and plan to heavily press their advantage to take out Republican incumbents.

The new district will almost certainly include Staten Island but could trade its current piece of Brooklyn for a more liberal section. The 11th District currently includes a significant portion of white, blue-collar Brooklynites, who tend to vote more conservatively than the rest of the rapidly diversifying borough. . .

"The people of this district have already made themselves clear and they don't want an anti-police, Pelosi puppet who flirts with socialism representing them in Congress," Malliotakis said in a statement when asked for comment about Roseís expected entry into the race.

The Purple Heart recipient known for his populist politics and blunt style was elected in 2018. In office, Rose often relished going after his own party, opposing Nancy Pelosi as speaker and running highly critical ads against New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.'

3. Locking

Alerted on for not being important nationally and the hostsí consensus is that this is not national interest, at least at this stage. Feel free to repost in GD if youíd like.
