Cox, 30, a New York native, is among a field of candidates seeking the GOP nomination to face incumbent Democrat Tim Bishop in the state's 1st Congressional District on Eastern Long Island, Huffington Post reported.

During the 2008 presidential election, Cox served as executive director of John McCain's New York campaign. He is a former associate at the law firm Weil, Gotshal and Manges and is the son of the Ed Cox, current chairman of the Empire State GOP.
Cox, a graduate of the New York University School of Law and Princeton University, has never held elected office.
