Barry Donadio Endorses Lee Zeldin For New York Governor

On June 23rd 2022, Conservative Republican Politician Barry Donadio endorsed Lee Zeldin for Governor of New York in the 2022 election. Donadio says it’s time to get back on track.

Donadio said; “There is only one choice for New York’s next Governor and it is Lee Zeldin. There is no one else that I would trust in this position that would be capable of fixing New York.”

“Lee Zeldin is a proven and true leader that is worthy to be New York’s top political leader” said Donadio.

Donadio went on to say; “I am a native Long Islander and I want a Governor for my home state that leads from the front like Zeldin. He is currently in the military and that means alot to me and many of my New York supporters. It shows that he will get down in the trenches like the rest of us in order to secure our freedoms against all challenges. Zeldin has a proven track record of standing up for the interests of all New Yorkers and he has always put Americans first. His strong support for our police and our military veterans has gone unmatched. I have no doubt that Zeldin will work to correct some of the bizarre and sick anti-police culture that we have experienced recently. With Zeldin, victims will come before criminal offenders do. I am willing to bank on that. I am 100% confident that Zeldin will do what is in the best interest for all New Yorkers regardless of party affiliation.”
