Cicero, NY- Today, New York Senate Republican Leader Rob Ortt stood alongside Congressman Lee Zeldin at the annual Onondaga Republican County Clambake to announce his endorsement as candidate for New York State Governor 2022.

Like me, Lee volunteered to serve his country by joining the US Army. He has a proven record fighting for New Yorkers and our country. Now more than ever, New York needs a battle-tested leader like Lee Zeldin who will fight to lower taxes, restore public safety, and meet the everyday challenges facing families and communities across New York.”
“Leader Ortt knows so well why one-party rule must end in Albany. He fights day in and day out to exceptionally represent hard working everyday New Yorkers in a city that is leaving so many people behind. Leader Ortt knows we must end the attacks on our freedoms, wallets and safety, and Save Our State. That's why he's all in on Team Zeldin. Together with Leader Ortt, I look forward to restoring a desperately needed balance of power to Albany in 2022,” stated Congressman Lee Zeldin candidate for Governor.
At the annual Onondaga County Clambake Leader Rob Ortt and Congressman Lee Zeldin gathered with supporters to discuss taking back the Executive Chamber.

I look forward to working with our next Governor Lee Zeldin to save our state,” closed Rob Ortt.
