NY GOP gov. candidate Lee Zeldin takes lead over Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul



The conservative candidate is leading the polls in the key New York gov race, just one-week before election day

For weeks New York’s closely watched gubernatorial race has shown Democratic incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul and her rival Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin in a neck-and-neck race.

But a new poll released shows Zeldin has taken the lead—just one week out from the election.

According to the Trafalgar Group poll released late Monday, Zeldin, who has taken a tough-on-crime stance is now leading the progressive incumbent governor 48.4% to 47.6%.

Only 4% of the likely voters polled said they remain undecided on who they wanted to elect as the Empire State’s next governor on Nov. 8.

Many issues are important to voters but in New York, crime has taken center stage in the race as violence continues to rock Big Apple both underground in the subway and along many streets—even in broad daylight.

According to statistics—specific crimes like robbery and assaults have spiked, revealing a sizable jump in transit crime.

Zeldin sparred with Hochul over the key issue in a heated debate.

When asked about addressing public safety Hochul said, “It’s about getting the guns off the streets. That’s the first start. We have more to do—but I’m the one to do it.”

Zeldin shot back saying, “Unfortunately Kathy Hochul believes that the only crimes that are being committed all these crimes with guns and yet you have people who are afraid of being pushed in front of oncoming subway cars, they’re being stabbed; beaten to death on the street with hammers.”

He continued, “go talk to the Asian American community and how it impacts them with the loss of lives; Jewish people targeted with raw, violent, antisemitism on our streets—it just happened yet again. We need to be talking about all these other crimes.”

This is a closely watched race. Candidates are embarking on the final push to get-out-the-vote ahead of election day, which is just one week from today.

Israeli soldiers use water cannons to stop protestors from breaking into PM’s house



Dramatic scenes in Israel as protestors take to the streets demanding a controversial judicial reform plan be scrapped

Dramatic scenes are unfolding in Israel following news the nation’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu has fired his defence minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday after Gallant called for a halt to a controversial judicial reform plan.

Gallant, a lawmaker from Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, broke ranks on Saturday by publicly urging Netanyahu to suspend the legislation.

He said, “The growing rift in our society is penetrating the Israel Defense Forces and security agencies. This poses a clear, immediate, and tangible threat to the security of the state. I will not allow this.”

His dismissal marks the largest public fracture in Netanyahu’s coalition government over the proposed reforms that have sparked mass protests and even dissent from some in the nation’s revered military.

Others in Netanyahu’s party have begun to waver: A top lawmaker echoed the defense chief’s call to pause the contested judicial overhaul on Sunday.

Dissent from the premier’s own party and cabinet has compounded months of unprecedented mass protests by Israelis who fear the package of reforms could endanger court independence.

Netanyahu, who is on trial on graft charges that he denies, says the overhaul will balance out the branches of government.

A key bill effectively giving his religious-nationalist coalition more control over the appointment of judges is expected to be brought for ratification this week in the Knesset, where he and his allies wield 64 out of 120 seats.

But how – or even if – that as-yet-unscheduled vote will proceed has been thrown into question by Likud dissenters. #trending #featured
