Why I quit McDonalds to run for office
I just got a call from an acquaintance who is running for governor of the state of New Jersey.
He told me he was a member of the Republican Party.
We agreed to talk.
It was a rare opportunity to talk about a state that was, in my mind, the most Republican in the country.
And I thought I would win.
I started getting calls.
And they were all from New Jersey, mostly from Republican voters, who wanted to know why I didn’t run for governor when I was already so popular.
But I wanted to make a difference.
So I did it.
Now, I’m running for Governor of New York.
And, as you know, the last time I ran for governor, I lost by a whopping 20 points.
So it’s a lot to take in.
But, the people of New Yorkers, we have a long way to go.
And if we want to make things better for the people who live in the state, we must make things more equitable and more fair.
And we need to make sure the government has a say in how we live, work and raise our kids.
We’ve got to make the system work for everybody.
So let’s do it together.
