Lee Zeldin, the Democratic seeker for New York governor, was attacked by a man who supposedly tried to impale him at an upstate event Thursday but the solon managed to escape uninjured, his crusade said

Zeldin was giving a speech when a man climbed onstage and appeared to begin scuffling with the solon, said Katie Vincentz

A videotape of the event in Perinton posted on Twitter showed the man appearing to snare Zeldin's arm before the two fall to the ground as other people try to intermediate.

He's fine. He is not seriously injured. It's just a chaotic scene there," Langworthy said

Langworthy said Zeldin had" just a little scrape" but it was not what anyone would consider an injury

Langworthy is calling on Hochul to issue a security detail for Zeldin to cover him on the crusade trail

This could have gone a lot worse

This could have really ended in a horrible way tonight and this is inferior," he said

Hochul, in a statement, condemned the attack and said she was" relieved to hear that Congressman Zeldin wasn't injured and that the suspect is in guardianship

Zeldin, an Army Reserve assistant colonel who has represented eastern Long Island in Congress since 2015
