When President Biden joined Governor Kathy Hochul in Yonkers on Sunday, Nov. 6, in a last-minute effort to support her in the battle against Republican rival Lee Zeldin, he repeatedly said "no more drilling" and stumbled on stage.

Biden yelled at a protester from the climate movement, "No more drilling," said reports.

The past week has seen a number of Democratic heavyweights attempt to save Hochul as Zeldin has begun to catch up to her in the polls, including Biden, who hasn't been actively campaigning for the midterm elections.

Biden and Hochul appeared at Sarah Lawrence College in a rally.

Zeldin's time in Congress was brought up by the president, who criticized the Republicans for voting against the Democratic agenda, including Biden's Inflation Reduction Act.

He added that Zeldin won't protect New Yorkers since he won't ban weapons and has previously supported the NRA.

The president also slammed Republicans’ “trickle-down economics” and blamed former President Donald Trump for the slumping economy.

The German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, was misgendered and referred to as "she" by Biden as he narrated a story about the G7 leaders' summit in the United Kingdom.

The president may have been referring to former Chancellor Angela Merkel, who attended the G7 summit in Cornwall, England, in 2021. Scholz hosted this year’s summit in Germany.

US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told the attendees that Hochul “worries about results, not the headlines".

“If Democrats turn out in record numbers, she will win. But we can’t be complacent. We can’t take it for granted. We can’t say, ‘Oh, New York is a Democratic state, I don’t have to vote,’ ” he said.

Schumer told the crowd, adding they need to fight against “the MAGA Republican war on women and their radical anti-choice agenda.”

Schumer also talked about Lee Zeldin voting against the $15 billion to keep the subways and mass transit and commuter rails going.

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) also spoke to the crowd.

Bill Clinton and Senator Chuck Schumer participated in a rally this week in Brooklyn in support of Hochul. She was also joined at one event by Vice President Kamala Harris and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Hochul has a 7.4-point advantage in the race, according to poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight.
