NY GOP leaders pick Lee Zeldin as ‘presumptive’ gov nominee after straw poll

NY GOP leaders pick Lee Zeldin as ‘presumptive’ gov nominee after straw poll

New York State Republican Party leaders anointed Long Island Congressman Lee Zeldin as their “presumptive nominee” for governor following a straw poll on Monday to take on scandal-scarred three-term incumbent Andrew Cuomo or another Democrat next year.

In the straw poll, an overwhelming 85 percent of county leaders said they backed Zeldin while only five percent preferred former Westchester County Executive and 2014 gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino.

Rudy Giuliani’s son, Andrew, did not garner any support while ten percent of the leaders abstained.

Both Astorino and Andrew Giuliani vowed to soldier on and run as insurgents against Zeldin to woo Republican voters and win the nomination.

Zeldin was thrilled that his early announcement for the nomination paid off.

“Since announcing our candidacy for governor, together we’ve built a groundswell of support inside and outside of politics from every corner of our state,” Zeldin said.

“For so many New Yorkers, this is a last chance to Save Our State, to return New York
from the brink and restore it to glory. Today’s vote underscores that the Republican Party is united in this mission, and in November 2022, we will win because we have to win.”

A Republican has not won a statewide race since 2002, when GOP Gov. George Pataki was elected a third term following the Sept. 11 attacks.

State Republican Party chairman Nick Langworthy said Zeldin is their party’s choice.

“Lee achieved 85 percent of the weighted vote. It was substantial, it was representing all regions. I think he really, truly earned this title of presumptive nominee,” Langworthy said.

“I think this will give an added boost to his campaign as he goes to raise funds and build support both in the Republican party and cross over voters.”

Langworthy said he didn’t expect Giuliani or Astorino to be successful in mounting a primary challenge against Zeldin.

“Donors are coming to me and saying, `we don’t want to waste our money on a primary.’ The task is too great. It’s so hard to win in a blue state. A primary would be a foolish expenditure of resources and I think donors would be far less likely to give. I think it’s very unrealistic,” he said.

“There will be more and more support around Congressman Zeldin.”

Langworthy also said he spoke to former President Donald Trump, who follows politics closely in his native state, about the movement toward Zeldin.

Zeldin also has the backing of the state Conservative Party, which provides a crucial ballot line to right-leaning voters — a key for a Republican to have a shot at winning a state-wide race in Democratic-leaning New York.

“On behalf of the Conservative Party I wish to congratulate the GOP on declaring Congressman Lee Zeldin their presumptive nominee for Governor. In doing so the GOP and Conservative Party will be united in supporting Zeldin, fully 16 months before the 2022 gubernatorial election giving his campaign the time and resources to successfully challenge scandal-scarred Democrat Andrew Cuomo or whomever the Democrats decide to put up,” said state Conservative Party chairman Gerard Kassar..

“The Conservative Party looks forward to campaigning with the Congressman in every corner of our state from now until Election Day 2022.”

Astorino vowed to wage a primary despite the results.

“The three million Republicans throughout New York will be deciding who the strongest candidate is in next June’s primary, not a few dozen party insiders, many of whom have told me they were pressured into making an endorsement they weren’t ready to make. This early straw poll is meaningless and eventually I’ll be the straw that breaks Cuomo’s back next November,” Astorino said in a statement.

Giuliani — who served as a White House aide to former President Donald Trump and whose campaign issued its own poll on Sunday claiming he led Zeldin by eight points among likely Republican voters statewide — dismissed the straw poll results. He said the preference of rank-and-file Republican voters, not party poohbahs, is what matters.

“It’s up to the 2.9 million registered Republicans in New York State,” Giuliani said after the vote.

“We ultimately can win this thing. We present them [the voters] with the best chance for a Republican to take back New York. We can appeal to more crossover voters.”

Giuliani is holding two fundraisers, including one Tuesday night at Empire Steak House in Midtown. Former presidential candidate Steve Forbes is the featured speaker.



Breaking:  Cuomo declares new state of emergency, this time for gun violence.  Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new emergency declaration admits ““This is normally not a state role. This is not what we do as a state government. But these are not normal times.”  You are right Gov. Cuomo; the institution of the NY SAFE Act, the numerous bills signed by you in the name of “Criminal Justice Reform”; allowing those arrested to be turned loose without out bail, a Parole Board determined to release violent criminals and looking the other way when misdemeanors are committee, all things that you have encouraged and signed into law, have created an environment that is “not normal times.”  Governor Cuomo, you are part and parcel of creating the increase in crime and it is time you admit that your agenda is responsible.  What you are proposing will do little to the senseless crime wave.  It is shameful that you are using the increasing crime statistics to bolster your decreasing poll numbers.

Governor Cuomo, the photos you used in your live press statement, were taken in public places with people who were more than willing to be welcomed in your established manner; there is NO comparison with a very public display and what happened in the privacy of the encounters as described to the Attorney General’s investigators.

Your press conference, was undoubtedly designed to provide an explanation of your egregious behavior, it did not.  In fact, it made it even more egregious, now that we know you have personal knowledge of sexual misconduct.  Nothing you can say, do, ask forgiveness for, will change the fact that you crossed the line.  As you noted, you are the Governor of New York State, and while only “human” like the 19 million people who live in New York State, as Governor you are expected to be a leader – a person to set a good example — not a debaucher who believes he is permitted to caress an assistant in your employ or the general public.

The Attorney General’s report noted New York governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, among them current and former state employees, in violation of federal and state law, yet stated the report is “is civil in nature and does not have criminal consequences.”  National Review is reporting that Anne Clark, one of the lead investigators for the probe, said prosecutors may look at the evidence contained in the report and determine whether to press charges.

It is imperative that criminal charges are filed; if not, how will any person ever have faith that they will be protected from such unwarranted, harassing and degrading actions by an employer, or for that matter another individual.

Governor Cuomo stated, in his presser, he will have yet another training session for himself and employees.  With out his resigning and facing criminal charges it will just as meaningless as the one state employees are required to take now.

Cuomo’s insulting resignation speech — self-serving to the end

Cuomo’s insulting resignation speech — self-serving to the end

It’s not me. It’s you.

That was Andrew Cuomo’s self-serving, tone-deaf resignation Tuesday. New Yorkers have always known he was a hugger, a kisser. But “the lines have shifted” so suddenly you can’t do that anymore, he said with a “Mad Men”-esque expression of shock. What’s a little groping between a boss and his aide? You can’t do that anymore??

Cuomo finally did the right thing, saying he was going to be out of office in 14 days. But despite his pleas of “I accept full responsibility,” he accepted none at all. He blamed a “hot” political environment. He blamed his enemies. He blamed Twitter. He claimed holding men to account was “unsustainable for society.”

Then he mansplained how much he’s done for New York, skipping over the nursing home fiasco, the book he forced his staff to work on, the disastrous bills he didn’t block. 

He said it was “in the best interest” of New York state that he serve, but it was going to cost too much money and take too much effort to impeach him. No, he didn’t do anything wrong. It’s that it would be too much of a distraction to try him for it.

“You know me,” Cuomo said. 

Yes, we do. You’re the egocentric governor who never accepted any blame, never showed a shred of regret, but attacked all his enemies with rabid hatred. 

No, Andrew. It’s not us. It was always you.
