New York Rep. George Santos, the embattled freshman Republican who has faced a slew of scandals following his election, has filed paperwork to run again in 2024.

The statement of candidacy filed to the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday — turned in on the final day allowed — keeps the door open for Santos to seek another term but does not guarantee he’ll run. The controversy-stricken lawmaker has yet to officially say whether he’ll try for reelection but has indicated he is open to such a run. The paperwork comes as lawmakers from his own party call for his resignation.

Tuesday’s filing does permit Santos to fundraise and spend money on campaign-related expenses. That could include some $700,000 he lent to his campaign, or legal expenses he could be facing from numerous lawsuits.
