Nick Langworthy  NY-23Congressman Nick Langworthy grew up in the small and tight-knit community of South Dayton, New York. After helping at his father’s small business in Jamestown, he quickly learned the value of a hard day’s work and how the role of government can either help or hurt business.

After graduating from Pine Valley Central School, Congressman Langworthy attended Niagara University, where he committed to a life of public service and eventually went and served in the district office of former Congressman Tom Reynolds and former Congressman Chris Lee, where he built a first-class constituent services team that served the people of Western New York. Congressman Langworthy most recently served as New York Republican State Committee Chairman, where he led the way for the biggest Republican lawmaker gains in recent memory and delivered the majority to the U.S. House of Representatives.

New York’s 23rd congressional district is located in Upstate New York, and covers part of Buffalo’s Northtowns, all of the Southtowns, and much of the Southern Tier. The district includes two of the eleven Finger Lakes: Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake.

The district comprises six entire counties: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben Counties, along with parts of Erie County. The largest cities in the district are Jamestown, and Elmira. With a Cook Partisan Voting Index rating of R+12, it is the most Republican district in New York.

Democrat Tracy Mitrano challenged Republican incumbent Tom Reed in the November 6, 2018 election. Reed won reelection on November 6, 2018, retaining his seat for a fourth term. Reed’s 8.4% margin of victory was his smallest since his first election in 2012. Reed and Mitrano also faced off in 2020, where Reed won again, this time with a margin of 16.6%.

On March 21, 2021, in light of recent sexual harassment allegations, Reed announced that he would not be seeking reelection in 2022. He resigned on May 10, 2022, leaving the seat vacant. A special election was held on August 23, which was won by Republican Joe Sempolinski. Sempolinski opted not to run for a full term in the regularly scheduled 2022 election, which was won by Nick Langworthy.


Nicholas A. Langworthy (born February 27, 1981) is an American politician serving as the U.S. representative for New York’s 23rd district since 2023. He was formerly the chair of the New York State Republican Committee. Langworthy was named chair of the committee in July 2019 after having chaired the Erie County, New York Republican Committee since 2010. He was the youngest state chair in party history.

Early life

Langworthy was born in Jamestown, New York. He attended the Pine Valley Central School in his hometown of South Dayton and graduated in 1999. After graduation, he attended Niagara University, where he established the university’s branch of the College Republicans. He graduated from Niagara with a bachelor’s degree in political science and chaired the New York College Republicans.[1][2]

Early political career

Early career

After interning at Governor George Pataki’s office and running a congressional campaign for Brett Sommer in 2000, Langworthy became a staffer for Congressman Thomas M. Reynolds. He managed Reynolds’s successful reelection campaigns in 2004 and 2006.[2] While working for Reynolds, Langworthy met his future wife, Erin Baker, who also worked on Reynolds’s staff. Langworthy later managed the successful 2008 campaign of Representative Chris Lee and served as Lee’s district office director until May 2010.[1][3][2]

Langworthy is the founder and president of a polling firm, Liberty Opinion Research.[1][4][better source needed]

Erie County Republican Committee

Erie County Republican Committee Chair James P. Domagalski resigned his chairmanship in 2010 to run for the New York State Senate.[5][6] An early front-runner for the county chairship, Langworthy made himself as visible as possible on the county and state Republican scenes. Langworthy unanimously won a special election for the chairship, becoming the youngest chair of either political party in Erie County’s history.[1][better source needed] He was the only Republican county chair to endorse Carl Paladino in the Republican gubernatorial primary in 2010; he emerged as a political powerhouse when Paladino won the primary.[7] Paladino’s primary upset, together with the Republicans’ successful effort to take control of the Erie County legislature, led Buffalo News chief political columnist Bob McCarthy to call Langworthy the “GOP’s Young Elder”.[8]

In 2016, President-elect Donald Trump announced that Langworthy would serve on the executive committee of his transition team.[9][10] Langworthy had been a vocal supporter of Trump’s presidential campaign.[11]

In September 2019, it was announced that Langworthy would be succeeded as Erie County chair by Boston, New York Republican chair Karl J. Simmeth Jr.[12]

New York State Republican Committee

Langworthy in 2021.

In 2018, Langworthy began campaigning for the chairship of the New York State Republican Committee against incumbent state chairman Ed Cox.[13] On May 20, 2019, after Monroe County Republican Chair Bill Reilich announced his support for Langworthy, Cox announced that he was withdrawing his candidacy for a new term as chair;[14] the Democrat and Chronicle reported that Langworthy was “poised to become” the next chair of the Republican Committee.[15] On July 1, 2019, Langworthy was named chair of the New York State Republican Committee.[16] He is the youngest state chair in party history.[17]

U.S. House of Representatives



In June 2022, U.S. Representative Chris Jacobs, who was running in New York’s 23rd congressional district, announced that he would withdraw from the race and not seek reelection. Langworthy subsequently announced his candidacy for the seat, which represents part of Erie County and most of the Southern Tier.[18] He won the August 24 Republican primary, defeating Carl Paladino.[19] In the general election, Langworthy defeated Democratic nominee Max Della Pia.[20]

Caucus memberships


On June 11, 2024, Langworthy voted (at 6:36 in video) against including H.R.1282 – MAJ Richard Star Act in the FY 25 NDAA. This despite the fact that he is listed as a co-sponsor of the bill.

Personal life

Langworthy’s wife, Erin Baker Langworthy, ran unsuccessfully for Amherst, New York Town Board in 2017.[22][23] She served as finance chair of the Erie County Republican Committee.[24]
