Congressman Lee Zeldin Statement on NY-1 Democratic Primary Results

My entire life has and continues to be in service to America and Long Island, working on behalf of our neighborhoods so they are not forgotten and ensuring our country has everything it needs to fight the battles of a constantly changing world.

I am willing to work with anyone when it comes to safeguarding the health, welfare and safety of our country. That is why the Lugar Center and Georgetown University currently rate me as the 12th Most Bipartisan Member of the House of Representatives. It’s been an honor to lead the effort this year to:


  • Bring home the $2 Billion Dream Machine Electron Ion Collider project to Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Secure over one million items of necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Suffolk’s health care providers and first responders
  • Help ensure our small businesses and their workers had the support they needed throughout the COVID-19 outbreak
  • Stand up to the threats our nation faces from adversaries abroad, such as the Chinese Communist Party, Iran, North Korea and others, while strengthening our relationships with allies like Israel

These are just some of the many important ways I’ve been fighting hard every day for the greatest Congressional District in America, which is why I’m especially excited and looking forward to delivering countless more victories as we move forward together.

America is at a crossroads, with many in our country pushing to ‘defund, ‘disband’, ‘dismantle’, or ‘abolish’ our police departments, institute a federal government takeover of our healthcare system, implement a disastrously flawed ‘Green New Deal’, and raise our taxes the likes of which we’ve never seen. We can’t let that happen.

Throughout my 17 years of service in our nation’s military, I’ve witnessed firsthand the dedication of so many selfless individuals who have put their lives on the line to defend our freedoms – we need more of that.


I will continue a laser focus on our economy, cutting taxes and growing jobs, increasing healthcare access and affordability, ensuring Long Islanders have clean air and clean water, protecting America’s safety and security at home and abroad, supporting our first responders and veterans, and stopping radical policies and other costly pursuits that would harm the families of Long Island.
