Congressman Zeldin said, “New Yorkers are sick and tired of the attacks on their wallets, safety, freedoms and kids’ education, and they’re putting their money where their mouth is. The unparalleled outpouring of grassroots support from every corner of our state has only grown stronger. 

“New Yorkers of all stripes are hitting their breaking point, and this is last stand time. In November, New Yorkers are going to restore a balance of power to Albany. They’re going to usher in a new generation of leadership, and Save Our State.”
