Chris Cox, an attorney and the grandson of former president Richard Nixon, is running for Congress in New York, according to his campaign web site.

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. A web site bio describes Cox as "a fiscal conservative who will fight for limited government and lower taxes."

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.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
