HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (WENY) – This weekend, Congressman Lee Zeldin, released the following statement after a Zeldin for New York campaign sign was vandalized with antisemitic death threats in Huntington, New York.  

Now, Zeldin is the Republican and Conservative Party designee for Governor. With a win, Zeldin would become the first Jewish Republican Governor of New York.

A swastika was spray painted next to the numbers 187, which, as the California penal code for murder, has been universally adopted as a common death threat.

In his statement, he said, “In the United States, we settle our scores at the ballot box, and this type of raw hate must never have any home on Long Island or anywhere else in our state and country.”
