Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on LG Brian Benjamin’s Reported Arrest

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on LG Brian Benjamin’s Reported Arrest

“In her first major decision as governor, Kathy Hochul chose a dirty politician to serve as her partner in government and running mate. Brian Benjamin’s shady dealings and corruption were well-documented, but Hochul turned a blind eye and put him a heartbeat away from the governorship. This decision was not just dangerous incompetence, it is proof that her tolerance for corruption runs deep in her veins, which is no surprise given she dutifully served with Andrew Cuomo for seven years. Just days ago, she continued to say she had ‘full confidence in him.’ She does not possess the judgment nor the moral code to serve as governor. The only way to wipe clean the Cuomo-Hochul stench is to throw the entire corrupt cabal out of office this November.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Senate Democrats Using 9/11 Imagery to Advance Radical Energy Agenda

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Senate Democrats Using 9/11 Imagery to Advance Radical Energy Agenda

“The fact that Senate Democrats stood proudly grinning in front of 9/11 imagery to advance their extreme energy agenda tells you everything you need to know about their radical views. It wasn’t a gaffe, it was a revealing display of how out of touch they are with everyday New Yorkers. They are not only ignoring the pain their policies are causing with record gas and home heating costs, but they are using the darkest day in American and New York’s history as a scare tactic. Senators May and Jackson have lost their minds; shame on them.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Biden’s Remarks About Gas Prices

“Americans are paying the highest prices ever for gas and it is a crisis of the Democrat Party’s own making. Since being sworn in, Joe Biden has destroyed American energy creation to appease the radical wing of his own Party.  We were seeing the consequences long before Russia brutally invaded Ukraine. Americans are being forced to shoulder the burden of their radical energy agenda that is not only crushing the low and middle class but also makes our nation less secure. Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Kathy Hochul, and every Democrat elected leader should be calling for a return to American energy production, today. Voters are watching.”

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Russia Invading Ukraine

This is a dark day for the democratic world. First and foremost, our prayers are with the Ukrainian people who are fighting for their lives and their freedom. Tragically, this outcome was entirely predictable, something Republicans have been warning about for more than a decade. Throughout history, America has been a remarkable force for peace and freedom when we lead from a position of strength. From the botched Afghanistan withdrawal to his radical energy policy, Biden’s weakness and ineptitude have led us to this moment, and the results will be felt far beyond the borders of Ukraine. Putin’s naked war of aggression shows just how emboldened he is and every moment that goes by without severe consequences is a threat to the entire globe.”

We owe her a huge debt of gratitude for her three decades of service and wish her much happiness and quality time with her loving family.”
