FEC Warns Santos For Fundraising For 2024 Reelection

ABC News reports:

The Federal Election Commission is asking embattled Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., to clarify by March 14 if he’s running again in 2024, according to a letter sent by the agency. The letter, sent to Santos on Tuesday, noted that his primary campaign committee, Devolder-Santos for Congress, reported raising and spending funds for the 2024 election, triggering a requirement for officially declaring a reelection campaign.

“You must either disavow these activities by notifying the Commission in writing that you are not a candidate, or redesignate your principal campaign committee by filing a Statement of Candidacy,” the FEC wrote in the letter. A spokesperson for Santos’ congressional office declined to comment when reached by ABC News. Asked last month if he was planning to run for reelection, Santos said, “That’s too early. I told you, I just got here.”
