New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand seems to be getting nervous that Lee Zeldin may challenge her in 2024.
Zeldin has not commented on the possibility.
Gillibrand sent a fundraising email gearing up for the potential match up.
“Our potential Republican opponent, Lee Zeldin, just attacked Kirsten Gillibrand on Twitter. As we gear up for the tough reelection fight ahead, we know this is only the beginning,” reads the email plea.

“Zeldin very nearly won the New York governorship in the 2022 midterms, all, while New York Republicans had their best election cycle in two decades — flipping enough House, seats red to retake the majority,” reads a fundraising pitch sent Wednesday to supporters.
The message came one day after Gillibrand told a local news station, “I will beat him,” if the Long Islander does decide to run to become the first Republican senator from New York since Alphonse D’Amato left office in 1999.
Zeldin on Friday responded to her comments with mockery.
Zeldin responded on Twitter.
“Tough talk from New York’s laziest and most forgettable Senator in generations. Senator What’s Her Name only says this because she is in a state with MANY millions more Democrats than Republicans. If the Democrat enrollment advantage was 2 million, that wouldn’t be enough. She’d be toast.”

Zeldin consistently drew large crowds at campaign appearances across the state when he came within striking distance in the New York Governor’s race.
