Colors: Cyan Color

The 2022 midterm results were a disappointment for Republicans; don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.  What was projected to be a Red Wave with gains of 40 in the House and a 54-seat majority in the Senate, now looks like a slim majority in the House, and the Senate staying in Democrat control. 

The one debate between Governor Kathy Hochul and Congressman Lee Zeldin for the keys to the Governor’s Mansion occurred last week, and the Zeldin team had much to celebrate.  The final pitches to the voters from each side could not stand in further contrast, and that contrast could be enough to flip a deep-blue state.

In the waning days of the 2022 midterm election cycle, Democrats around the country clung to the game plan they have had since the overturning of Roe v.

The alarm rings. You shower, dress, and rush to shul. You return, wake your children, grab a bite, and catch the train. You navigate a stressful day of work, power through rush hour, drive mishmar carpool, manage homework (okay, this one depends on your child), make supper, attend a simchah, be menachem aveil, meet your chavrusa, attend shiur, daven Maariv (gasp) – you mean I must also vote? Yes, you do. We all do.

New Yorkers who care about the future of our city and state need to turn over their ballots and VOTE NO on all four Ballot Proposals on Election Day, November 8. Three of these four ballot measures are the work of former mayor Bill de Blasio and a small minion of leftists obsessed with racism in America who propose to radically overhaul the NYC Charter.
