The Connected Push initiatives that Rep. Lee Zeldin has gained New York State’s Republican gubernatorial nomination.
Zeldin, a four-phrase lawmaker who represents New York’s 1st Congressional District, which addresses the jap 50 percent of Extensive Island, topped a discipline that also integrated Rob Astorino, the former Westchester County govt and 2014 GOP gubernatorial nominee Andrew Giuliani, who served in former President Donald Trump’s administration and is the son of former New York Metropolis mayor and former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Harry Wilson, a businessman, trader and restructuring expert who poured thousands and thousands of his personal money into his gubernatorial bid.
Zeldin will now confront off in November against Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, the state’s former lieutenant governor who was sworn in final August as New York’s initial feminine governor, after 3-term Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned in shame amid multiple scandals.
Governor Kathy Hochul has turned out to be as substantially of a disaster as Andrew Cuomo. She is a COVID zealot who, like California Governor Gavin Newsom, holds on to crisis powers specified to the governor throughout the COVID pandemic so that she can lord it over New Yorkers with mask mandates and vaccine limitations. A latest poll confirmed that 54 p.c of New Yorkers feel Hochul is carrying out a bad work. Zeldin has previously declared that he does not aid mask or vaccine mandates, and if elected governor, will carry the mandates and relinquish emergency powers.
The very last Republican governor elected in New York state was George Pataki, 20 several years ago. Will Zeldin be the a person to tear down that wall?
