Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York has announced that he’s exploring the possibility of a gubernatorial bid.
The GOP congressman’s announcement comes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, faces allegations of sexual harassment and criticism related to nursing home deaths amid the coronavirus crisis.
“With his nursing home cover-up & abuse coming more to light, it’s clear #CuomosGottaGo. As a NYer, I can’t sit back as Cuomo attacks our freedoms, our wallets & our safety. After many msgs of encouragement & discussing w/ my fam, I’m actively exploring a 2022 run for Gov of NY,” Zeldin tweeted.
