ICYMI: Outsider Harry Wilson Turns in Record Number of Signatures

“We made the number by an overwhelming margin. We filed over 36,000 signatures today. That is by far more than any candidate – a Republican candidate for statewide office – in history, more than anybody in history. In fact, that’s 30% higher than the second highest. So, we had overwhelming success driven by a great team and incredible grassroots support. That is despite the fact that the Zeldin campaign made significant efforts to dissuade people from working on anything other than their race.”

“Wilson said he gathered the most signatures ever for a GOP primary, proving grassroots voters aren’t sold on Zeldin and want a choice. “This is the broadest repudiation of a convention designee in history,” Wilson told Newsday in an interview. “There is an encouraging amount of interest among Republican grassroots voters who want a primary.” Wilson contended he could win more independent voters and crossover Democrats than Zeldin[.]”
