Hochul and Zeldin Lay Out Differences on Abortion, Crime, Guns and 2020 Election

HeadlineOct 26, 2022

In New York, Governor Kathy Hochul squared off with Republican Congressmember Lee Zeldin in their only gubernatorial debate. Governor Hochul called out Zeldin’s positions on abortion rights, gun control and his support of Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Gov. Kathy Hochul: “You basically heard Lee Zeldin say he would vote once again to overturn a presidential election. I think that’s something everybody should know, and the fact that he sent text messages to the chief of staff of the White House to lay out the strategy on how to subvert public opinion and try to carve it into this idea that there’s a big lie out there. And I think that’s deeply troubling.”

Ahead of Tuesday’s debate, climate activists shut down traffic on Park Avenue as they called on Governor Hochul to tax the rich and pass a Green New Deal. Police arrested some of the activists who were protesting in front of BlackRock headquarters.
