Zeldin campaign says antisemitic death threat made against GOP candidate for governor

The number refers to murder in the California penal code and is often understood as a death threat. If elected, Zeldin would be New York's first Jewish Republican governor. A campaign spokesperson said in part, "This type of raw hate must never have any home on Long Island or anywhere else."
