An unexpected comeback for this Republican has the Left’s jaws on the floor

Democrats thought they finally got rid of this politician for good. But then everything changed in a hurry.

And this unexpected comeback for this Republican has the Left’s jaws on the floor.

Thursday evening’s State of the Union address by President Joe Biden involved many key storylines and even some surprises.

One of those surprises was the return of former Rep. George Santos (R-NY) to the U.S. House chamber for Biden’s remarks.

Santos was expelled from Congress late last year after a report from the House Ethics Committee showed that he used campaign funds for various luxury items.

He hasn’t been convicted of any crime, but has faced several indictments for things such as identity theft, credit card fraud, and other various charges. Santos has not pled guilty to any of those charges.

But while Biden was making his State of the Union address, Santos took to the social media platform X to bash the president as well as make a major announcement.

“I just witnessed a weak, frail president deliver spin and lies to the American people from inside the chambers. I have made several personal sacrifices in the name of serving the American people. My promise is that I will never back down because of my love for this country,” Santos said in his post.

“New York hasn’t had a real conservative represent them since I left office arbitrarily, thanks to RINO, empty suits like Nick Lalota.”

“He is a willing to risk the future of our majority and the future of this country for his own political gain. After a lot of prayer and conversation with my friends and family, I have made a very important decision that will shake things up.”

“Tonight, I want to announce that I will be returning to the arena of politics and challenging Nick for the battle over [New York 1st Congressional District]. I look forward to debating him on the issues and on his weak record as a Republican. The fight for our majority is imperative for the survival of the country.”

Before, Santos was elected to New York’s 3rd Congressional District and then expelled from that seat back in December.

Now he’s running in New York’s 1st Congressional District where he will take on Republican Rep. Nicholas Lalota in the primary.

The former Rep. also told reporters that Thursday night was the first time he was back in the House chamber since he was expelled.

Santos explained that since he’s a former congressman, he has the privilege to come to the House floor when Congress is in session.

“I was just visiting with some of my colleagues in a very bipartisan fashion,” he said.

Will George Santos be able to defeat Lalota on his way to becoming a U.S. congressman again?

Only time will tell.
