Maragos is running in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing New York. He is seeking the nomination on the Republican ticket and will face U.S. Rep. Bob Turner and Wendy Long in the June 26 primary. The winner will face Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand and Green party candidate Colia Clark in the general election.[2]

Long and Maragos have taken the more conservative stance compared to Turner. For example, Turner has not taken a "no tax increases" pledge along with the other two. Turner says he's more ready to compromise in order to get things accomplished in Washington.[3] Maragos has also criticized his opponents for not seeking to repeal New York's legalization of same-sex marriage.[3]

Polls have Turner and Long out ahead of Maragos, but also show none of the three having very good chances of beating Gillibrand[1] in the strongly Democratic state of New York.[4]
