WARWCK – Republican gubernatorial candidate Congressman Lee Zeldin of Long Island spent Saturday in Orange County, meeting with state Conservative Party leaders and stumping with GOP officials in the Warwick area.
Zeldin said as he travels around the state, issues are similar.
“The common theme is so many New Yorkers are hitting their breaking point and seriously thinking about leaving the state and they are citing the high cost of living, public safety, education, and I have also had multiple people bring up the investigations and scandals in regards to Governor Cuomo and the belief that people feel like he has been in office too long and it is time for him to go,” Zeldin said.
The gubernatorial election is over a year away.
Zeldin was the first Republican to announce a bid for the post. Just this past week, former Westchester County executive Rob Astorino, who lost against Cuomo once before, threw his hat into the ring.
