GOP challenger to scandal-plagued Cuomo rakes in $1 million just 1 day into campaign


Andrew Cuomo’s despicable rule in New York has never been seriously challenged. He won re-election to a third term by 23 points in 2018 — an election in which he arguably didn’t even try.

Cover ups? Zeldin was all for Trump covering up Coronavirus. Remember when Trump attacked NY hospitals and rather than send us more PPP accused us of stealing and selling it.

Lol, New York despises you and everything you stand for, this is gonna be a hilarious embarrassment for your family and devastating personal failure for you. Enjoy being more reviled and laughed at than you already are ?
