Pro-Trump Rep. Lee Zeldin running for New York governor

On Thursday, Congressman Lee Zeldin announced that he is running for the New York governorship amid incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo in hot water over his failures with COVID-19 nursing homes deaths and a slew of sexual assault allegations.

“We are going to win this race,” Zeldin said Thursday on Fox & Friends. “I’m all in. We are all in.”

Zeldin wrote on Twitter, “I’ll bring the kind of relentless, fighting spirit towards helping to save our state that Cuomo reserves for multi-million dollar self-congratulatory book deals, cover-ups, abuse & self-dealing.” 

“Throughout US history, NY has led the way forward for our country. From Washington leading the Continental Army from Manhattan, to Lincoln’s Cooper Union speech, & the rebuilding of NYC after 9/11, the Empire State has been a beacon of hope, progress & patriotism for 250 yrs.”

“With 1-party Dem rule in NYC & Albany, the light that was a beacon of what America can be has gone dark. The NY once a magnet for the world’s best & brightest is now forcing its own to leave under the weight of crushing taxes, lost jobs, suffocating regulations, & rising crime.”

“At the helm of NY’s downfall is Andrew Cuomo, whose deadly nursing home order & cover-up is part of a long line of scandals, lies, & harassment. Cuomo has abused the power & trust granted to him & it’s time for him to immediately exit stage left.” 

“I’m ready to go all in on this mission and bring New York back from the brink and return it to glory. For many, this feels like a last stand to save our state. Get involved, by visiting http://ZeldinforNewYork.Com and texting LEE to 484848. Losing is not an option!” 

Zeldin is a Trump ally and notably, a point man during President Trump’s impeachment.  With the mass exodus of New Yorkers leaving the state due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he could have a real shot of winning the election.
