County Executive Latimer confirms he was approached to run in 16th Congressional District
Westchester County Executive George Latimer has confirmed to News 12's Tara Rosenblum that he has been approached by politically connected individuals to run in a primary against Rep. Jamaal Bowman.
"I am thinking about the advice I have been given and will have more to come," he told Rosenblum.
The race involves 16th Congressional District, which covers both Westchester County and the Bronx.
Latimer is one of the most prominent county executives in New York. He has been the Westchester County executive since 2018. He was previously a state senator, assemblyman and served as the Westchester County legislative board chairman.
He has never lost an election in over three decades in public office.
Bowman has been representing the 16th Congressional District since 2021.
News 12 has reached out to both Latimer and Bowman for comment.
