Here’s another one that was not even close. New York Republicans chose Andrew Giuliani, but it was not Andrew Giuliani.

The Associated Press projects that Rep. Lee Zeldin has won New York State’s Republican gubernatorial nomination.
Zeldin, a four-term lawmaker who represents New York’s 1st Congressional District, which covers the eastern half of Long Island, topped a field that also included Rob Astorino, the former Westchester County executive and 2014 GOP gubernatorial nominee; Andrew Giuliani, who served in former President Donald Trump’s administration and is the son of former New York City mayor and former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani; and Harry Wilson, a businessman, investor and restructuring expert who poured millions of his own money into his gubernatorial bid.
Zeldin and Democratic Gov. will be facing off in November. Kathy Hochul, the state’s former lieutenant governor who was sworn in last August as New York’s first female governor, after three-term Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo quit in disgrace after multiple scandals.
Governor Kathy Hochul is as disastrous as Andrew Cuomo. Hochul is a COVID fanatic who like California Governor Gavin Newsom holds onto the emergency powers granted to her during the COVID pandemic to rule New Yorkers with vaccine restrictions and mask mandates. A recent poll showed that 54 percent of New Yorkers feel Hochul is doing a poor job. Zeldin already stated that he doesn’t support vaccine or mask mandates. If elected governor, he will remove the mandates from New York and surrender emergency powers.
The last Republican governor elected in New York state was George Pataki, 20 years ago. Is Zeldin going to be the one who takes down this wall?
