NY Republican Governor Candidate Lee Zeldin Attacked At Campaign Stop By Man With A Knife (VIDEO)

New York Republican governor candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked by a man with a knife while campaigning this week. Luckily, the man was stopped and Zeldin wasn’t hurt.

This comes just weeks after a crazed leftist was caught lurking outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with the intent to kill him.
