MICHAEL GOODWIN: I think the likely nominee for the Republicans in New York will be Lee Zeldin for governor. And I think Zeldin is a qualified candidate. We’ll see how he does … but I think this is a year when Republicans can win the governor’s race in New York. È stato 20 years now since George Pataki was the last Republican to win a statewide election in New York. Quello era 2002. Da allora, it’s been Democrats, Democratici, Democratici, not only in the governor’s office, ovviamente, but in the state legislature and the comptroller’s race and the attorney general. Republicans have not come close really in all that time. This is the year, credo, when that’s possible and for two reasons related, ovviamente, to the general national consensus. And that is that it looks like a red wave is forming. New York is not exempt.
