Former CNN political analyst John Avlon announced his departure from CNN in February and has now filed to run for Congress as a Democrat in New York’s 1st Congressional District.

Avlon, formerly the editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast, made clear on social media that targeting former President Donald Trump would be a focus of his campaign.

This is not the first time Avlon has been critical of Trump.

He will compete in the Democratic primary against former state Senator James Gaughran, former administrative law judge Craig Herskowitz, and organic chemist Nancy Goroff, who lost to the incumbent Republican in 2020.

The eastern Long Island district is considered competitive.
