Dem Congressional Candidate Desperately Tries to Distance Himself from Biden on Eve of Huge Special Election

A Democratic former congressman who is vying for the seat of former Republican Rep. George Santos of New York distanced himself from President Joe Biden during a TV interview on Monday.

Former Rep. Tom Suozzi is seeking to retake the seat he previously held for three terms before Santos was elected in 2022.

He faces Republican Mazi Pilip in a race for New York’s third congressional district, which has been without representation since late last year when Santos was ousted from the House.

A win by Pilip could bolster the Republican Party’s narrow House majority.

During an interview on “Good Day New York” on WNYW on the eve of the election, Suozzi did not appear in a hurry to be attached to Biden, who he called “old.”

After he attacked Pilip as being too far-right for the district, Suozzi was asked by the show’s hosts about Biden’s age and whether he believed it should be disqualifying for a presidential candidate.

“I mean, the bottom line is he’s old!” Suozzi said of Biden, whose age and mental competency have been the subject of a nationwide conversation in recent weeks.

“I mean, he’s 81 years old,” Suozzi added. “We all know people — I know 81-year-old people that are in good shape, and I know 81-year-olds that are not in great shape. He’s old, and there’s no question about it.”

Will Biden be the Democratic nominee for president?

Suozzi portrayed himself as more of a centrist than a far-left Democrat and would also not commit to supporting Biden’s re-election bid.

In fact, he questioned whether Biden would be on the ballot at all in November.

“If he ends up being the Democratic candidate, I’m likely to support him, yes. We’ve got to see what happens,” Suozzi told WNYW.

“There’s all kinds of debate as to whether or not he’s going to stick it out or not,” he added. “I don’t have any inside scoop or anything like that, but, you know, let’s see what happens between now and the Democratic convention.”

Suozzi might be keeping Biden at a distance for good reason as New Yorkers struggle with an influx of illegal immigrants who have trickled into the area due to the White House’s open borders policies.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday morning, Pilip reminded those living in Queens and Long Island that Suozzi has supported protecting illegals from immigration officials.

“Get out and vote today in the special election for Congress,” she told her followers. “Only you can stop the Suozzi/Biden open borders and their sanctuary cities.”

Pilip also included a photo of her opponent posing with Biden.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
