Robert Zimmerman Campaigns with Far-Left AFT President Weeks Before Election

Robert Zimmerman is touting the support of Randi Weingarten, President of the AFT, who shutdown schools in 2020 and left children behind in education.


(Oyster Bay, October 18th, 2022) – With just over three weeks to go before Election Day, Democrat Robert Zimmerman is choosing to sidestep voters and campaign directly with Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, a far-left radical that led the effort to keep schools closed all across the country in 2020, crushing the ability of millions of children across the country to learn. Zimmerman expresses his Support for this radical agenda:


“I am so grateful to Randi Weingarten and my friends at New York State United Teachers, United Federation of Teachers, and the American Federation of Teachers for their Support.

Randi said it best: our democracy is on the ballot this November, and I am proud to be fighting alongside our teachers in NY-03.”


Randi has been a strong proponent of limiting parents’ involvement in their children’s education and champions an unhinged curriculum to be a part of the classroom. Weingarten did everything possible to keep schools shut down. Under her regime, parents are treated with contempt for trying to be appropriately involved in their children’s schooling.


“Robert Zimmerman is completely out of touch with New York’s Third Congressional District,” Santos said. “Rob continues to align himself with far-left elites that have created the problems we see today. Thanks to Randi Weingarten and the AFT, our children and grandchildren are vastly behind in their education. Education is the future of our country. Randi Weingarten and Robert Zimmerman may like to play politics with our kids, but I will fight to deliver quality education to protect the American Dream for our next generation.”
