Parent party backs GOP candidate Lee Zeldin for top statewide offices

A new political party that will be on the ballot in November has backed Lee Zeldin for governor.

The Parent Party of New York advocates for school choice, support for the police, and tenure limits. In addition to Zeldin, the group backed a similar slate of Republican candidates for the state’s highest positions, including Allison Esposito for lieutenant governor, Paul Rodriguez for comptroller, and Joe Pinion for the United States Senate.

“Across America, a national political movement is empowering parents to take back control of their child’s education from the classroom to the school board,” endorsed Patrick Donohue, president of The Parent Party of New York, in a news release. While announcing. “This national movement is empowering citizens to take back control of our democracy in the halls of Congress from City Hall to the State Capitol.”

While the Parents Party is quick to point out that it is also supporting registered Democrats, the support appears to coincide with a concurrent Republican goal of collecting signatures for Zeldin to sign on independent lines.

“It is critically important that we continue to sign the petition for the independent nomination for Lee Zeldin as quickly as possible,” state GOP chairman Nick Langworthy said in an email to supporters on May 9. “It’s an important project to elect Lee Zeldin and the ticket statewide in November. I’m counting on all of you to help with this effort.”

In a statement, Speaker Langworthy told The Post that his party was asking “all our volunteers to assist in the effort to create a free ballot for our entire supported Republican slate.”

“We want voters of all political stripes to have a place to vote for our common-sense agenda of returning security and affordability to New York,” he said.
