EXCLUSIVE – Saying that "to save New York, Andrew Cuomo’s gotta go," Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin on Thursday morning declared his candidacy for governor of the Empire State.

Zeldin becomes the first Republican to launch a challenge against New York’s embattled three-term Democratic governor, who faces allegations of sexual harassment from 10 female accusers, which has triggered an independent investigation by the state attorney general and an impeachment investigation in the State Assembly.

Zeldin, a staunch ally of former President Trump and a four-term lawmaker who represents the state’s 1st Congressional District in the eastern half of Long Island, made his announcement in a live interview on "Fox and Friends."
