How Zeldin’s Anti-Abortion Stance May Affect the N.Y. Governor’s Race

When Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a warning to the general election:

If her Republican opponent wins, he may follow the Supreme Court's

lead in curtailing New Yorkers' rights to abortion.

His own victory speech, Republican opponent Lee Zeldin, didn't have a word to say about Roe v. Wade.

After he had applauded the ruling, Mr. Zildin instead

focused on Ms. Hochul’s handling of the pandemic, inflation, and crime.

Their divergent approaches are no accident as New York enters

the most competitive general elections the Empire State has seen for two decades.
