Christopher Cox, Tricia Nixon and state GOP Chairman Ed Cox's son and a candidate for Congress in New York, has gotten engaged to his 19-year-old girlfriend Andrea Catsimatidis, a member of NYU's class of 2012.

The engagement was announced on Cox's Facebook page. Cox, 31, is running as a Republican on Long Island.

She graduated from New York's Hewitt School in 2008 and is the daughter of billionaire supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis.

Andrea updated her Facebook status Thursday night: "Andrea is engaged to the greatest man in the world (besides her father of course!)! YAYYYYYY!!!!! <3"

Her father, Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis, was a longtime Democratic fundraiser who made the switch to the Republican party in 2007.
