Rep. Lee Zeldin, who this week announced he was weighing a run for governor of New York, says Gov Andrew Cuomo’s time is up, and that New Yorkers are ready for a Republican lawmaker to take office.
”I do believe that there’s a commonality among New Yorkers regardless of whether you’re Republican, Democrat, Independent, that they believe Andrew Cuomo has been there too long, it’s time to go,” Zeldin said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s ”Spicer & Co.”
”There’s a desire to save our state. People are upset with the attacks on our freedoms, our wallets and our safety. … The time may be right. The fact is that you have one-party rule in New York City, in Albany and in Washington, D.C. The year 2022 is going to be a good year for Republicans and certainly Andrew Cuomo — this is the expiration date of his governorship. The reservoir of goodwill is empty, his house of cards of support is collapsing.”
Zeldin said he’s surprised Cuomo is even considering another run.
”Rational people would say between the nursing home directive, the allegations that have come out on bullying, harassment, the abuse, the intimidation, that he would heed the calls and go,” he told Sean Spicer. ”Or maybe he would be impeached, maybe be indicted, there’s a lot that can develop.”
