The first 100 days

Now that our grassroots campaign is up and running, Lee Zeldin is immediately reaching out to his allies, begging for a campaign bailout:

"Last year's race cost us just under $5 million and we had to empty our campaign coffers to win by just a few points."

That's from a recent fundraising note from Lee. The incumbent needed every dollar he could to beat back a challenge from me, a previously unknown challenger. Now Zeldin must run on his record.

After 100 days of a new Congress, we are seeing the possibilities that come from real leadership. Democrats have already passed major bills on campaign ethics and reform, restoring net neutrality, mandatory background checks, and condemning expressions of hate.

And where was Lee Zeldin? He instead voted for:

In the next few months, Democrats will push plans for infrastructure and lower prescription drug prices. Will Zeldin be cooperative? Seems unlikely.

I'm asking for your presence, your participation, and your energy. I'm asking for your help to take our country back from Lee Zeldin.

Real leadership for Long Island means overturning the awful SALT giveaways to the states that voted for Trump. It means clean air and water, taking on climate change. It means prosperity for all, not just an elite few. It means never, ever cozying up to white supremacists. It means actually addressing gun violence and not letting the NRA set the agenda in Congress.

Long Island deserves much, much better. Because 100 days into the new Congress, it's just more of the same from Lee Zeldin.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
