Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) launched his campaign for Governor of New York and his campaign website at ZeldinforNewYork.Com. Congressman Zeldin issued the following statement regarding next year’s election:
“The bottom line is this; to save New York, Andrew Cuomo’s gotta go.
Today, I am proud to announce that I am running for Governor of New York in 2022. I will bring the kind of relentless, fighting spirit towards helping to save our state that Andrew Cuomo only reserves for multi-million dollar self-congratulatory book deals, cover-ups, abuse and self-dealing.
“Throughout America’s history, the State of New York has led the way forward for our great country. From George Washington leading the Continental Army from Manhattan to fight another day, to Abraham Lincoln’s Cooper Union speech, to the massive industrial advancements that made America the world’s preeminent economic power, to the rebuilding of New York City after 9/11, the Empire State has been a beacon of hope, progress, and patriotism for 250 years.
“With one-party Democrat rule in NYC and Albany, the light that once shone as a beacon of what America can be has gone dark. The New York that was once a magnet for the world’s best and brightest is now forcing its own to leave under the crushing weight of skyrocketing taxes, lost jobs, suffocating regulations, and rising crime resulting from dangerously liberal policies.
“At the helm of New York’s downfall is Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose disgraceful and deadly nursing home order and cover-up is part of a long line of scandals, lies, and harassment. Cuomo has abused the power and trust granted to him and it is time for him to immediately exit stage left.
“I am 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. Losing is not an option.”
