Mike Pence endorses Lee Zeldin in New York governor race

Former Vice President Pence added his name to a long roster of Republican heavyweights who have thrown their support behind Rep. Lee Zeldin in the New York governor’s race.

“Proud to endorse @leezeldin for Governor! Vote November 8th!” Pence tweeted Saturday.

Zeldin has long enjoyed a close relationship with former President Donald Trump, who backed his campaign in his own endorsement in October.
