Andrew Cuomo may never get over Albany Democrats forcing him to resign and replacing him with his own lieutenant governor Kathy Hochul.
But revenge for Cuomo may be around the corner.
And the sex scandal-disgraced former NY governor is quietly cheering after he found out the bad news that just walloped Kathy Hochul.
Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was forced to resign in disgrace amid multiple scandals, and replacement Kathy Hochul has been a disaster in her own right.
One Republican running for governor just got support that nobody expected
In fact, Hochul is so bad, Democrats in the state are beginning to publicly endorse Republican challenger Lee Zeldin.
Townhall reported that “it was always going to be a tough battle for a Republican to win in New York’s gubernatorial race this November, but it looks like Rep. Lee Zeldin, the party’s nominee running against Gov. Kathy Hochul, is doing what needs to be done for him to have a chance. Late last month Zeldin announced the endorsements from the New Era Democrats, as well as Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr., and former Democratic Assemblyman Dov Hikind. On Tuesday, Zeldin announced in a press release he had also been endorsed by New York City Councilman Robert Holden.”
Democrats are running sideways from Hochul because she has proven to be a radical.
For all his faults, Cuomo was at least smart enough to attempt to lure residents back to New York – Hochul has told Republicans to get on a bus to Florida.
Holden appeared on Fox News and detailed the problems facing the state, explaining, “We can see it on those streets any time you go outside in New York City, there seems to be problems…[M]y wife won’t ride the subway at all because of the violence that we see and it’s gotten out of hand, so all you have to do is look around…I’ll endorse Republicans when I think they’re better for the job, and certainly Lee Zeldin is better for the job than Kathy Hochul, our current governor.”

“I am a common sense Democrat that means I will endorse Republicans when I think they are better for the job and certainly Lee Zeldin is better for the job than Kathy Hochul”

In addition to Holden, former New York City Council president Andrew Stein also endorsed Zeldin, and he explained his decision in a New York Post op-ed.
More New York Democrats jump to help Cuomo see revenge on his former Lt. Gov.
Stein wrote, “Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have left the state, taking billions of dollars in tax revenue with them, putting our state at risk of a fiscal crisis. Just as serious, and even more visible, there’s demonstrable evidence of the rise in violent crime every day, as well as the absolute failure of law enforcement in our city and state to do anything about it. Put directly, despite the best efforts of Mayor Eric Adams (whom I supported), the Legislature and a number of prosecutors — including but not limited to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg — have created a turnstile justice system that’s been singularly responsible for an unprecedented increase in violent crime over the last few years. We must do something about this.”
Bragg is one of the far-left district attorneys being bankrolled by George Soros.
If Democrats allow the state to get bad enough, a Republican like Zeldin may stand an outside chance at getting elected.
