Republican Candidates

Nicole Malliotakis (R)


@NMalliotakis is running for Congress in NY, I know her well, we need her to defeat Max Rose, who voted for Impeachment! Nicole is Strong on Crime & Borders, #2A, Cutting Taxes, & she Loves our Military & Vets. Nicole has my Complete & Total Endorsement!

FEC File 

Nicole's Rating: 2 Stars (Rating Criteria)

Nicole Malliotakis said that she regretted voting for President Trump. She was the New York State Chairwoman for Marco Rubio's 2016 campaign for President. She opposes the Administration's ban on transgenders serving in our military (military would be required to pay for expensive hormone therapy and surgery to alter biological gender). Nicole also opposed the travel ban from countries who support Islamic terrorism. However, the Wall Street Journal states that "Ms. Malliotakis noted she spoke with the President in a call facilitated by Mr. McCarthy in January. “It was very encouraging, so much so that I filed to run a week after,” she said."

President Trump won the Staten Island District which also covers part of Brooklyn by 10% in 2016. We lost the seat in 2018 to Max Rose (R) by 6%. Of course we want to win back the 11th District of NY in 2020, but the GOP is getting behind a candidate that does not stand with our great President. Surprisingly, congressman Steve Scalise (R) LA donated 10k through his PAC to Nicole. Marco Rubio and Liz Cheney each gave 1k. Dan Crenshaw (R) TX held a fundraiser for her in Brooklyn recently. Not all Republican elected officials on Staten Island have endorsed her though. 

Nicole says that she will stand against the so-called "Squad" if elected as well as against Mayor de Blasio. She has raised significant funds but still has less than half of what Democrat Max Rose has accumulated.

The Campaign Corner is trying hard to promote unity within our Party. Not every Republican who gets labeled as a "RINO" (Republican in Name Only) is against President Trump, in fact many vote with him more than 90% of the time. But unless President Trump endorses this candidate, we will not support her.*** updated 02/14/20 - President Trump very graciously endorsed Nicole. We sincerely hope that she supports him with her votes in congress.

Nicole's 2 Star Rating reflects her lack of support and respect for President Trump and his leadership within our Party. She also lacks trustworthiness as a reliable vote in the US Congress for the Trump Administration's agenda. She gets a star for having raised money and for her background experience in politics.

Joe Caldarera (R)
