Poor Lee Zeldin. If only he would have run for governor in a state that still has free and fair elections. The Republican candidate was leading in several polls on election day in New York State but lost to hapless Kathy Hochul, a complete imbecile.
Now New York State can continue its death spiral of crime, violence, socialism, and oppressive regulations.
Lee Zeldin helped elevate Republican candidates in the state.
Lee Zeldin probably helped save the House by bringing four new Republican congressmen-elect across the finish line.
We owe him a lot.

The good news is Lee Zeldin is taking calls from Republicans urging him to replace Ronna McDaniel after she blew another blowout election.
NBC News reported:
Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., who lost a surprisingly close race for governor last week, has spoken with GOP elected officials and party activists who want him to run for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee, his media consultant said.
“He has received calls from around the country,” John Brabender said Sunday. “It’s likely that he will at least explore it. … He’s fielding calls, talking to people, listening to them, but it has not gone beyond that.”
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel has not said whether she will seek re-election at the party’s winter meeting in January, nor has Tommy Hicks, the co-chair. Under the party’s rules, the top two posts must be held by one man and one woman.
With former President Donald Trump expected to announce a third bid for the presidency Tuesday, and with many of the top-tier candidates he endorsed — and who pushed his 2020 election lie — having lost in the midterms, Republican officials have been buzzing about who might take the reins if not the Trump-picked McDaniel and Hicks.
