Statement from NYS Democratic Chairman on Lee Zeldin


For Immediate Release: April 8, 2021

NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"New Yorkers will never elect a Republican like Lee Zeldin who has continued to tie himself tightly to Donald Trump, QAnon conspiracy theories, and who has continued to support the “Big Lie” that the Presidential Election was stolen from Donald Trump and that Joe Biden is not legitimately in office. New Yorkers will never support the candidacy of someone who endorsed treason when he voted against certifying the results of the Electoral College on January the 6th – right after a Trump incited mob of insurrectionist rioters, intent on stopping that very certification, took over the very Capitol he was elected to serve in. His vote was an endorsement of the actions of that mob – motivated by a lie that he continues to spread. Not only will he never serve as our Governor, he doesn’t even deserve to serve in Congress."
