New York GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney says that Republicans have a shot at winning New York due to Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul's neglect on the issue of crime. 

"We have a major crime problem because of the one party rule in Albany and the policies that Kathy Hochul refuses to talk about," Tenney said on the Wednesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

"The Republicans are coming out in higher percentages than they usually do," Tenney stated. "And that means that it could be trouble for Kathy Hochul. We could see a historic night with Lee Zeldin actually taking out Kathy Hochul for the first time since we had a Republican governor Governor Pataki  back in 1994."

Crime has been steadily increasing in New York, even in rural areas according to Tenney. The New York Post broke a story on Tuesday about a man who got out of jail with no bail and then executed his estranged wife in front of their kids 24 hours later.

Tenney says that crime has gotten so bad in New York that even Democrats are asking for something to be done about it.

"When you have former Lieutenant Governor Bob Duffy, a Democrat under former Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleading with Kathy Hochul to do something about this terrible cashless bail system and the laws that prioritize criminals over victims in New York, it's a real problem," Tenney said. 

The GOP candidate for Ohio's 7th congressional district, Max Miller, says that if Democrats wanted to fix issues such as crime, they would have done it already but they refuse too. 

"If Joe Biden made these issues a priority, he could fix them," Miller said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "He could fix our energy independence. He could shut down our southern border...He could help us with the labor shortage and everything else with our energy independence. But he chooses not to, because he and the progressive left want to change the fabric of our country."
