Lee Zeldin says Trump has a ‘real chance’ at winning New York – EVOL

Former gubernatorial GOP candidate for New York Lee Zeldin has stated that he thinks Donald Trump has a “real chance” at winning the often-deep blue state of New York in this upcoming election.  

Zeldin, who ran against Democratic New York Governor Kathy Hochul in 2022 has said that Trump has a good chance to win the Empire State in 2024. Zeldin only lost to Hochul by around four to five percentage points in 2022. Zeldin wrote his thoughts down in a New York Post op-ed on Friday and commented on the release early morning on Saturday.  

“President Trump is actually closer now at this point of this campaign than I was,” Zeldin told Fox and Friends on Saturday. He added that Democratic Party registration is down and Republican Party registration is up in the Empire State. The opinion piece titled “Why Donald Trump has a real chance of winning in NY,” was released on Friday in the New York City outlet. He penned the opinion with former New York City Council president Andrew Stein, a Democrat from New York. 

“It may seem unbelievable but it’s true: Donald Trump actually has a fair shot at winning New York in this year’s presidential election,”
