MISS ME YET? Santos Reacts to GOP Losing His Seat, Trump Blasts 'Foolish Woman' Mazi Pilip

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.14.24

Democrat Tom Suozzi came away victorious Tuesday night in the special election for former New York Rep. George Santos’ seat. Santos was kicked out of Congress after he was exposed for lying about his background and indicted for financial crimes.

Suozzi defeated GOP opponent Mazi Pilip.

Santos reacted to news of the loss on X.

“I won #NY03 with $0 super PAC money, $0 CLF money and $0 Establishment money. Tonight the establishment set $10 million on fire! I FLIPPED a 23 year Blue seat with the help of grassroots activists and by activating the base with retail politics… Hey @NassauNYGOP money does not buy votes, it’s respecting the wishes of the base that wins votes. #NY3 is #MAGA country and since MAGA was disrespected, MAGA stayed home!”

Santos also pinned a post to the top of his profile.

In a late-night Truth Social post, Trump called Pilip a “foolish woman” and claimed she lost on Tuesday because she did not endorse him.

“Republicans just don’t learn, but maybe she was still a Democrat? I have an almost 99% Endorsement Success Rate in Primaries, and a very good number in the General Elections, as well, but just watched this very foolish woman, Mazi Melesa Pilip, running in a race where she didn’t endorse me and tried to ‘straddle the fence,’ when she would have easily WON if she understood anything about MODERN DAY politics in America,” Trump wrote.

Pilip, an Ethiopian-born Nassau County legislator, originally registered as a Democrat in 2012 before running for office as a Republican, according to Politico.
