Zeldin, who represents the state’s 1st Congressional District covering eastern Long Island and was formally endorsed by former President Donald Trump, conceded the race Wednesday morning, Nov. 9.
"Congratulations @KathyHochul on her election to a full term," Zeldin said in a statement.
"This once in a generation campaign was a very close margin in the bluest of states. If not for the dedicated, hard work of grassroots volunteers and supporters this incredibly close race wouldn't have been possible."
Hochul, who took office in August 2021 when Andrew Cuomo resigned after allegations of sexual misconduct, is the first woman to be elected governor in New York.
"Last night, we learned that New Yorkers believe our democracy, safety, reproductive freedom, climate, and economy are ALL worth fighting for," Hochul said on Twitter Wednesday, Nov. 9.
"And that’s exactly what we’re going to keep doing."
"To all the women and girls out there, including my granddaughter Sofia: You can do anything you set your mind to."
