Lee Zeldin murdered Kathy Hochul in last night’s gubernatorial. Lucky for Lee, Hochul isn’t very keen on prosecuting murders.

Gov. Kathy Hochul and her Republican challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin both came out swinging at the singular debate in New York’s gubernatorial contest Tuesday as recent polls show a tighter-than-expected race just two weeks from Election Day.

The Democratic governor seeking her first term and the Long Island congressmember hit on the themes that have defined their campaigns: She criticized him for being an ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump who doesn’t support abortion rights; he hit back that Hochul has let crime fester in New York City and hasn’t done enough to address the state’s high cost of living.

“You’re poorer and less safe because of Kathy Hochul and extreme policies,” Zeldin said directly into the camera in his opening statement. “This is your opportunity to save New York.”
