Charlie Crist is leaving his D.C. seat to challenge America’s Governor, Ron DeSantis, in Florida. Lee Zeldin is leaving his D.C. seat to challenge New York’s worst painted lady, Governor Kathy Hochul.
You should remember her; she acted like some oracle saying that God wants us to get vaccinated.
The Governor race in New York is now considered a toss-up. According to Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, a recent poll from The Trafalgar Group says that Governor Hochul is ahead by 2 points. While on FiveThirtyEight, Hochul is ahead by a few more points, depending on the poll.
The GOP platform for this midterm relies heavily on law and order. On the Sunday Morning Future with Maria Bartiromo, Lee Zeldin clarified that he would provide New York with law and order.
“New Yorkers are leaving this state more than any other state across the entire country, and the reason why is because Albany has been attacking their safety, attacking their wallets, and they’re heading for opportunities elsewhere.” He said.
Maria Bartiromo then asked Zeldin what he would do in his first 100 days.
“I want to do everything I possibly can in the first 100 minutes. I want to have a very active day one. I just announced a couple of days ago that as soon as I am sworn into office, I’m going to be declaring a crime emergency here in the state of New York. I’m going to suspend New York’s cashless bail laws and some other pro-criminal laws that have been passed. Force the legislature to come to the table to negotiate an improvement because we have to take back our streets. We need law-abiding New Yorkers back in control of the streets instead of criminals.”
He ends his response by saying that he will have an aggressive day one because they want New Yorkers that he won’t be wasting time. The aggressive day one also includes removing Alvin Bragg, Manhattan’s District Attorney.
On Sunday, President Donald Trump endorsed Zeldin:
I have watched and known Congressman Lee Zeldin for many years. He is a great and brilliant lawyer who was a “must see” for others in Congress when they had a complex legal problem that was holding up legislation. Lee was strong on the Border, Crime, our great Military & Vets (like few others!), and fought hard to protect our 2nd Amendment, and succeeded. Lee Zeldin is a WINNER who GOT THINGS DONE. He will be a GREAT Governor of New York, and has my Complete & Total Endorsement. GOOD LUCK LEE!
Now, if only people would give Tina Forte a chance to speak and spread her name. She is running against AOC and is a true Bronx girl. Either Trump should endorse her, or the Republicans need to step up their game because Tina Forte may be the one to oust AOC.
It is a long shot, but this is why Republicans are always losers; they give up without even trying. She is someone the deep state definitely doesn’t want on the Hill. Her race still doesn’t have any polls. She is literally the dark horse in the New York race.
