The American election is becoming increasingly heated. People are anxiously awaiting their new representatives as the 2022 US elections are set for this November.
Zeldin’s Anti-Abortion Stance
Lawyer, politician, and officer in the United States Army Reserve Lee Michael Zeldin is a citizen of the United States. He has served as the republican representative for New York’s first congressional district in the House of Representatives since 2015. He is now running for governor as a Republican against Gov. Kathy Hochul (Kathleen Courtney Hochul), an American politician and lawyer serving as the 57th governor of New York since August 24, 2021. She is a Democrat, the state’s first female governor, and upstate New York’s first female governor since the 1930s.
The Republican candidate for governor, Lee Zeldin, stated earlier this week that the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was a triumph for the family, life, and the Constitution. Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a general election warning on Tuesday, stating that if her Republican opponent were to win the election in November, he may use the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction to limit New Yorkers’ access to abortion.
The Republican opponent Lee Zeldin, on the other hand, remained silent during the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. A few days after praising the decision, Mr. Zeldin continued to criticise Ms. Hohol for how she handled crime, inflation, and the epidemic.
The general election in the United States in 2022 will be the most contested that the Empire State has seen in the previous 20 years. According to the most recent reports, New York is a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans. They have a 2:1 advantage, so Mr. Zeldin must work to the best of his capacity to win the election.
In order to defeat Zeldin, Ms. Hochul is dedicated to persuading the electorate that her viewpoints are stronger than those he advances. This is not your typical Republican, the state’s first female governor declared on Wednesday, just before launching a new website that called Mr. Zeldin a character from the “extreme margins.” She also said, “He also favours restricting women’s freedom of choice. Located in New York.
For a state like New York, which legalised abortion in 1970 and was the second in the country to do so, the overturning of Roe v. Wade is not just a straightforward case. According to the most recent estimate made by The New York Times using recent polls conducted before the Dobbs decision was made public, 63 percent of adults in New York agreed that abortion should be permitted. While only seven states are in favour of them, 32% are against it.
Mr. Zeldin, a traditional Long Island congressman with four terms, was known for voting to restrict access to abortion and prevent federal funding from going to Planned Parenthood. He even co-sponsored legislation that, with a few exceptions, would legally prosecute doctors who performed abortions after 20 weeks. These attributes enabled him to advance to important positions in anti-abortion organisations.
Ms. Hochul and her fellow Democrats are wealthy with millions of dollars to spend on advertising and are open about their campaign tactics. They are even prepared to support former President Donald J. Trump in a vote to invalidate the results of the 2020 elections in several key states, in addition to his views on abortion and gun control.
