Elise Stefanik, a Republican representative from New York, said that there is a crime crisis in the state due to the policies of Governor Kathy Hochul.
She also discussed her thoughts on why she believes Lee Zeldin will win and she commented on Hillary Clinton's efforts to support liberals in New York on Fox's "America's Newsroom".
According to her, Zeldin is going to win the election and will be able to implement tough-on-crime policies in New York. She noted that there is a huge momentum behind his campaign. She also said that there are independents and Democrats who want to see a change in the state.
Clinton was campaigning for Hochul in New York City on Thursday. She noted that the Republican Party is trying to scare voters by talking about the increasing crime rate. She also said that they don't care about keeping people safe.
According to Stefanik, this is not a scare tactic, as New York State is experiencing a crime crisis. It's also not just in the city, but across the state. She noted that the crime problem is affecting areas in northern New York as well.
Stefanik noted that the policies of Hochul have made the state less safe. She also said that law enforcers are supporting Zeldin because they want to see a change in the state. She noted that Hochul did not take the opportunity to reform the bail system.
Despite Clinton's attempts to scare voters, she noted that the people of New York are still going to turn out to support Zeldin.
According to Stefanik, a homeless man was apprehended on Thursday after he allegedly choked and sexually assaulted a woman while she was jogging in New York City's West Village. The suspect, who had a long history of arrests, was wanted in connection to other sexual assaults.
