Zeldin Rakes in Endorsements to Challenge Cuomo

Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York continues to roll up endorsements in his bid to challenge Gov. Andrew Cuomo when the politically wounded three-term Democratic governor is up for re-election next year.

Besides what seems like nearly daily announcements of one county or local GOP leader after another supporting the four-term lawmaker who represents New York’s 1st Congressional District in the eastern half of Long Island, Zeldin this past week rolled out a series of congressional endorsements from fellow House Republicans.

They ranged from fellow New Yorker Rep. John Katko, a moderate to voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump – to conservative Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, a top Trump ally in Congress.
