Zeldin back on campaign trail in Seneca Falls one day after attack

Congressman Lee Zeldin resumed his campaign for Governor with a stop in Seneca Falls just 12 hours after he was attacked at a campaign rally in Perinton.


Zeldin critical of bail reform law

Fingerlakesdailynews.com reports the Congressman and running mate Alison Esposito spoke at the Seneca Falls County Club Friday morning. Zeldin was attacked by a man with a plastic keychain at the Perinton VFW Thursday night.

The suspect, 43-year-old David Jakubonis of Fairport, was charged with attempted assault and released. Zeldin has used the incident to criticize New York’s bail reform law, which took effect in 2020.

Zeldin’s campaign website does not list a schedule of future campaign stops.
