PHOTOS: Will Sean Eldridge Become The Prettiest New Face In Congress?

Not all that much is known about 27-year-old Democrat Sean Eldridge, a Democrat who is running for the U.S. House of Reps from New York. Other than the fact, of course, that he just happens to be the husband of New Republic magazine owner/Facbook billioniare Chris Hughes, of course. And that some don’t like his tactics for getting elected.

Yet we do know Mr. Eldridge is an ambitious fellow and an emerging champion of equality, a cause we could use a lot more of in Congress. And there’s no debating that if elected in November, he will instantly become the sexiest member of Congress, rivaled only by Aaron SchockWe just can’t get enough of his neatly-pressed oxford shirts, fitted suits, dazzling white teeth and hazel eyes.

He reminds us of a young Bobby Kennedy or something.

Scroll down to see photos of Mr. Eldridge as he campaigns to go to Washington…

    Gosh, I’d marry him in a heart beat if he weren’t married already and I were single

  • Tackle

    That first pic does not do him justice. Yes he’s a nice looking guy. But I hear he’s not very outgoing, engaging or particularly charismatic. If true, I’m sure his husband’s money can overcome
    all that.

  • Dan

    He’s not that hot, he’s just young.

  • Mezaien

    OK he is nice for white man. But is he HOMO? if not just be a Democrat and you`ll end up the president I`ll make sure of it.

  • BJ McFrisky

    Only if his boyfriend purchases the seat for him.


    That ain’t a smile it’s a grimace! Whatever’s really going through his mind he’s keeping TIGHT LIPPED. Ewww. No. OTOH anything is better than a republican.

  • Razmos

    I usually find a guys smile to be one of the most attractive thing about him, but this guy I think the opposite. He’s nice looking but his smile looks completely fake, and his teeth are just.. too white.
    He would probably look a lot nicer if he smiled without showing so much teeth.

  • TinoTurner

    Strictly judging from the photos…that looks like the most boring couple I’ve ever seen.

  • buybioniconitunes

    I wonder why he has no upper lip

  • viciouslies

    I would be shocked if he wins. The district is a toss-up, but the Republican incumbent has lived there his whole life and locals in upstate NY aren’t exactly big fans of carpetbaggers… ESPECIALLY ones from NYC.

  • Bromancer7

    As someone who lives in his district I can tell you for sure he is working HARD to earn this seat, unlike his rivals. He is always out and about at various events meeting and greeting. I haven’t met him in person yet, but he’s made himself very visible and gives the impression he’s not just a pretty face with deep pockets who is going to sit back and do nothing once elected.

  • Alan down in Florida

    Exactly the kind of man you could bring home to mother (and tell her to keep her hands to herself).

  • jrich

    Is this really someone the gay community should be rallying behind? Even if just to admire his slightly above average looks and fancy suits? He’s an entitled, richboy carpetbagger who has accomplished nothing other than a fancy wedding to the rich little shit who made Facebook. The little bastard couldn’t even finish law school! Do we really want a political system where the .001%, gay or straight, can just flat-out buy themselves powerful political positions? He doesn’t give a shit about that district. He just wants to be congressman! A 20something billionaire ain’t the kinda gay who needs your free press, Queerty. Save it for someone else.

  • TrekBear

    Pretty face or not, what are his policies? Is this the guy who’s hubby would be bankrolling his possible Congressional run?

  • BelltownBrian

    His smile looks strange to me. Maybe his veneers aren’t fitting right.

  • SteveDenver

    Thanks Queerty for keeping it PUERILE.

    Perhaps Eldridge is exactly who we need in the House, perhaps he isn’t; but we may never find out from you about his policies, politics and previous political activity, because he’s pretty.

    So we get a fashion spread where queers can take pot shots at his looks.

  • Ditamo

    @Tackle: Kinda of sad that people think that does qualities are what makes good leaders. Con artist have the same quality you listed, wouldn’t want them as my leaders. Sad reality is that most are just that. Maybe a certain value change is needed in the US?

  • Stache99

    @Bromancer7: What is he actually running on though besides looking dazzling in his “expensive fitted suits”?

  • Stache99

    Another thing is that it’s kind of a mighty position to have for your first time job. He has 0 qualifications other then $. Don’t they usually start off working as say an aid for a congressmen or some city job first?

  • bproud

    I don’t think you realize how inappropriate “prettiness” is in this headline. And not because he is unattractive. You just set up the haters to use your headline against him.
    The next time an upcoming lesbian politician come along, please also pass on judging HER “prettiness”.
    That word is totally inappropriate for ANY supportive politician. Please talk about their abilities and credibility.

  • Stache99

    @bproud: Well, he did land himself a very rich husband and become a rich trophy boy himself. His sugar daddy bought him a 2 million dollar mansion in that district so he could run there too. I think that’s speaks of his abilities pretty well.

  • Kieran

    Let’s hope Sean doesn’t grow up to be a bitchy, self-hating, toxic queen like some of the girls posting here.

  • Stache99

    @Kieran: Oh get you and your sassy mean ghetto talk. Lol

  • sejjo

    @Kieran: Amen.

  • Cagnazzo82

    Good thing is he won’t be on the DL, like some other supposedly handsome/self-loathing conservative congressmen we might know.

  • Large Marge

    @Ditamo: Pretty people often win (see Kennedy vs. Nixon) and not always because they have the best policies, but simply they are more attractive or more well-spoken… or rich.
