ICYMI: Lee Zeldin Takes Heat from Andrew Giuliani in Messy GOP Primary Battle
For Immediate Release: May 11, 2022
NEW YORK, NY: New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin is taking heat from his fellow Republican candidates for his "vague" answers on abortion.
When pressed about his commitment to appoint a pro-life health commissioner and provide anti-abortion advocates with "open door access" to his administration, Zeldin attempted to hide his extreme record.
Now, Lee Zeldin is getting slammed by Andrew Giuliani, Trump White House staffer and son of disgraced former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani said, "Lyin' Lee can’t be trusted" ... "I am not afraid to say I'm pro-life. As a father, I must protect all children, born and unborn."

"I am not afraid to say I'm pro-life. As a father, I must protect all children, born and unborn." [...]
Katie Vicentz, a spokeswoman for Zeldin's campaign, responded that, "There isn't a single accusation in that press release that is true." [...]
