Lee Michael Zeldin (born January 30, 1980, age 40) is an American attorney, veteran, and conservative Republican currently serving as the U.S. representative from New York's 1st district. He was previously the state senator from New York's 3rd upper legislative district from 2011 to 2014.

U.S. House of Representatives

2014 election

Zeldin was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 2014 during a red wave, defeating Democrat then-incumbent Tim Bishop by nearly 10% of the vote.[2]

Tenure

Zeldin was the strongest and most outspoken opponent of the impeachment coup against Donald Trump,[3] asserting that it will rip “the country in half”. He later voted along with his House Republican colleagues against the sham impeachment articles.[4]

Political views

A conservative, Zeldin opposes abortion, same-sex "marriage", and Obamacare.[5]

Along with fellow Republican representative Peter T. King, Zeldin endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.[6]
