NEW YORK -- Republican U.S. Rep. and nominee for New York governor Lee Zeldin's campaign said he was the target of an antisemitic death threat.
A swastika was spray-painted with the number 187 on a Zeldin campaign sign in Huntington. 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."
