Local Conservative Party enthusiastically backs Lee Zeldin for governor

Posted 23 April 2021 at 8:41 pm


The Orleans County Conservative Party unanimously endorses NY Congressman Lee Zeldin as candidate for Governor of New York in the 2022 election.

I first heard the congressman make his announcement on the Sean Hannity radio show last week. After personally speaking to him while he was on the floor of Congress in the process of casting a vote, I was sold that this was the right man to take on failed Governor Andrew Cuomo or whatever kind of incompetent evil that the Democratic Party puts up to further destroy the soul and business climate of a once great state like New York.

The destructive one-party leadership of progressives in this state is causing the smart people with the means to leave to go to well-managed law-and-order states like Florida, Texas, Tennessee among others where they can live free from burdensome regulation and nanny state bureaucrats, where the money they retire on or earn will go much further.

Lee has impeccable credentials and is a combat veteran, a paratrooper and infantryman of the Army’s Elite 82nd Airborne Division having participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He holds many other military titles.

He is a proven winner. Elected to the State Senate in 2010 then to the US Congress in 2014, representing NY-1 successfully ever since. In just 2 weeks he has raised well over $2.5 million dollars. Lee will be leaving his position in Congress because he knows it’s do or die for the Empire State.

New York can not survive 4 more years of regressive progressive leadership. Lee is a true conservative. More conservative than many of his counterparts in Congress. He has what it takes to bring this sunken ship called New York back up from the depths of despair.

That is why so many of us are pleased that we have a candidate so conservative and getting out in front a year and a half ahead of the election. We hope Lee Zeldin becomes a household name and the Orleans County Conservative Committee is very excited to endorse this man as a candidate to lead our state.

The people and businesses are begging for real leadership. Andrew Cuomo and the Democratic Party have failed us miserably and left a path of destruction and real human suffering. Cuomo has ruled as a King, a Tyrant and a Gangster. Cuomo is an embarrassment to our state and our country. We have had enough! Cuomo and any gubernatorial candidate they may put up needs to go!
