Zeldin: 'Losing is not an option' in fractious GOP primary for New York governor

3 43 1

ALBANY, N.Y. — Long Island Rep. Lee Zeldin’s 14-month-long campaign for governor of New York has been defined by his associations.

His Democratic critics attack him for a long record of being publicly chummy with former President Donald Trump since 2016. His Republican primary opponents say he wasn’t consistently close enough — and that he was actually former Democratic Gov. Andrew “Cuomo’s favorite Republican” due to his votes as a state senator in Albany.

On Tuesday, the impact or irrelevance of his associations with one or both of New York’s recently scandal-scarred sons could reveal itself in the winner of the four-way Republican primary, which Zeldin and state party officials maintain he is primed to clinch.
