NEW YORK – Representative Lee Zeldin says he’s operating at “110 percent” after being diagnosed with a form of Leukemia late last year.

The four-term Republican Congressman says he started treatment shortly afterward and that the disease is now in remission.

Zeldin is running for Governor of New York and has been criss-crossing the Empire State for his campaign.

He made the announcement in April after saying then-Governor of New York had to leave office in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

Zeldin’s Doctor says people who have chronic Myeloid Leukemia treated early can expect a normal life expectancy.
