Nixon kin running for U.S. House seat on LI
A Long Islander with presidential lineage recently announced he?s trying to get to Washington himself.
Thirty-one-year-old Chris Cox is Richard Nixon?s grandson and he?s one of the Republicans running to unseat Rep. Tim Bishop in the 1st Congressional District.
The Westhampton Beach homeowner is a lawyer and business consultant who describes himself as pro-environment, pro-life and fiscally conservative.
Cox says he is looking forward to running for office and walking in his grandfather's footsteps.
Suffolk Democrats have already questioned whether Cox is actually a Long Island resident, perhaps an early indication of the campaign season ahead.
