A champion for Staten Island
Rep. Max Rose (NY-11) is an Army veteran, an infantry company commander in the National Guard, the former chief of staff for the nonprofit Bridgepoint Healthcare, and a Staten Island Democrat who pulled off one of the top upsets of 2018. Rose earned a Bronze Star and Purple Heart during his service in Afghanistan, and is the first post-9/11 combat veteran of the war in Afghanistan elected to office in New York City.
An outspoken voice for cleaning up Washington
Rose is one of the most vocal campaign finance reform champions in Congress. He rejects contributions from corporate PACs and federal lobbyists and made fighting special interest influence in Washington a central theme of his campaign. Within his first few weeks in office, Rose signed on as an original co-sponsor to H.R. 1 and introduced his own stand-alone legislation that would tighten lobbyist registration loopholes.
A critical re-election campaign
He already faces a tough re-election fight, representing a district that Trump won by nearly ten points. Rose has already drawn one Republican challenger in NY Assemblywoman and former mayoral candidate Nicole Malliotakis. The race has been named one of the NRCC’s top targets and is rated as a Toss Up by the Cook Political Report. End Citizens United is proud to stand with Max Rose and is committed to fully supporting his re-election efforts.
