Dems In FULL MELTDOWN Over Trump’s Massive Win In New York

Published on

Zeldin argues, though, that he may still become the first Republican governor of New York since George Pataki was elected in 2002.

“The prediction was that George Pataki was going to lose by 11.5 points, and that wasn’t on Labor Day weekend,” Zeldin said Sunday. “That was the week before the election. And George Pataki just days later went on to make history. We elected a Republican governor.”

This past weekend, there was a benefit for Zeldin.

The event was hosted at the residence of the Chera family in Long Branch, New Jersey, which is affiliated with the St. Regis New York Hotel.

The home belonged to the late New York real estate magnate Stanley Chera, a prominent member of the Sephardic Syrian Jewish community and Donald Trump’s buddy. He died of COVID in April 2020, according to The Press.

Invitations to the event said that attendance was $1,000 per person, with a VIP reception costing $5,000, a picture opportunity costing $25,000, and “event chair” designation costing $100,000.

The Asbury Park Press reported that former President Trump conducted two fundraising events for his 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns at the residence.

Not unexpectedly, the previous president also favors Zeldin.

Included in the tough struggle for votes is outfundraising the opposition

The Post says that Zeldin still faces a significant funding deficit in the governor’s race against Hochul, who contends that Zeldin’s support for Trump makes him too extremist to serve.

Hochul is leveraging Zeldin’s relationship with Trump to stoke voter opposition.

“Zeldin is desperately looking for cash and a path forward by doubling down on his allegiance to the far-right MAGA agenda,” her campaign said in a recent press release.

Sunday’s fundraiser appears to be giving Hochul more ammunition in her arguments against Zeldin and his connections with the former president.

Playing on the Democrat idea that more voters do not like Trump than do, Holchul presented the Republican alliance as a negative.

“Zeldin will do and say whatever it takes to appeal to the far-right, even if it means raising money alongside the disgraced former president,” her campaign spokesman, Jerrell Harvey, said in a statement Sunday night. “His blind loyalty to Trump is too dangerous for New York.”

According to campaign filings from July, Hochul’s campaign had $11.7 million on hand, in comparison to $1.6 million for Zeldin.

Trump did not endorse the congressman before his primary win in June.

In addition to being ahead by fundraising, Hochul is understandably leading in polls in the heavily Democrat State at the moment.

According to a Siena College Poll in August, Hochul was ahead by 14 percentage points.

The same poll showed that 63% of respondents had an unfavorable view of Trump.

It is possible that that liberal tradition is changing, however.

However, a new Trafalgar Group poll shows the gap may be closing between the candidates, with Zeldin being just percentage points outside the margin of error and Hochul holding a lead of 4.4 points.

Newsweek reported that “Zeldin has noted that he is chipping away at Holchul’s lead in the polls, and he may still yet achieve a shock victory in a state that has been overwhelmingly Democrat over the past four decades.”

And that difference is showing in fundraising efforts as well.

A week ago, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had to cancel his appearance at a New York fundraiser for Zeldin due to a memorial service for one of Florida’s finest, Special Agent Jose Perez, who was fatally injured in the line of duty and passed away from those injuries.

DeSantis honorably attended the memorial rather than the fundraiser.

But Zeldin’s next fundraiser brought in some big guns.

Rep. Lee Zeldin’s campaign for governor of New York got a boost Sunday night from an appearance by former President Donald Trump at the New Jersey fundraiser Sunday afternoon, News Max reports.

The single event raised $1.5 million.

The former president supported Zeldin in person and made his feelings about the gubernatorial candidate clear.

Zeldin, Trump said, helped him survive “impeachment hoax number one and impeachment hoax number two and a lot of scams … I had these maniacs against me. He was one of those great voices.”

Zeldin likewise praised Trump, commenting that “there are people you meet in politics who you refer to as friends. They’re the people who show up the day after you win. They tell you they were there the whole time. I’m pretty sure they weren’t. But then they are our friends.”

He also noted that Trump has “strong supporters – people who believe in him, people who believe that his policies are right for America and that his policies still to this day are right for America.”
