In an interview with 710 WOR’s “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning,” New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin described Governor Kathy Hochul’s agreeing to only one debate with him in late October as driven by arrogance and a misunderstanding of the type of governmental representation the people of New York want.
“I’m rejecting that offer of the Governor,” Zeldin told Berman and Riedel. “She needs to agree to do multiple debates. Just doing one debate for one hour is not going to cut it.”
Zeldin feels that Hochul needs to participate in more debates particularly because there are so many areas where her position is not clear. He said that she seems to have the attitude that people should elect her and then find out in January what her positions are.
“I think that she actually ends up losing even more by taking that posture because quite frankly there are a lot of people who probably don’t even agree with me, aren’t going to vote for me, who would agree that there needs to be multiple debates and there’s a lot to cover,” said Zeldin.
