NEW YORK, NY - 

Today, the New York State Democratic Party launched a new video highlighting Republican nominee for governor Lee Zeldin’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election and promote far-right conspiracy theories in New York State. 

The video depicts the violence during January 6th, Lee Zeldin’s speech on the House Floor objecting to the certification, and his ties to far-right extremist groups like the Oath Keepers and Long Island Loud Majority –– who were both in attendance during the deadly insurrection. 

“Lee Zeldin is a disgrace to democratic institutions everywhere and has tried repeatedly to erode trust in our elections,” said NYS Democratic Party Spokesperson James Martin. “Zeldin‘s involvement with far-right groups like the Oath Keepers and Long Island Loud Majority make him too extreme for New York and unfit to hold public office in our state.”
