New York gubernatorial hopeful Rep. Lee Zeldin was nearly stabbed at a campaign rally on Thursday in Perinton, New York, a small town just outside of Rochester. The Republican was in the midst of a speech at VFW location about bail reform as part of his 'United to Fire Hochul' campaign when he was confronted. Video from the scene shows the suspect enter the stage from slightly behind Zeldin, walk calmly up to him and eventually raise up his arm towards the candidate's upper body. A group of Zeldin supporters quickly subdued the attacker. In a tweet, Zeldin said: 'Someone tried to stab me on stage during this evening’s rally, but fortunately, I was able to grab his wrist and stop him for a few moments until others tackled him.' A weapon, appearing to look like a sharp pair of brass knuckles, was recovered from the scene. The weapon featured a cat's face with the words: 'Made in the USA' written across it.
