Representative Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) announced that he would run for governor of New York in comments on Fox and Friends on Thursday.
“I’m running for governor of New York in 2022,” Zeldin said. “I’m all in, we are all in.”
Zeldin added, “I love this state. I’m still here. We need to turn it around….People are going to flee every single day until we do.”
Zeldin criticized what he termed the “one-party rule” of Democrats in the state, and blamed Governor Andrew Cuomo for the state’s “downfall.”
