Republican Congressional candidate Lee Zeldin will tap into his Albany connections on Dec. 17 at a fundraiser here in the state’s capital city.

The fundraiser for his NY-1 campaign will be held at the law offices of Featherstonhaugh, Wiley & Clyne, LLP, where partner James Featherstonhaugh is head of the New York Gaming Association.

Tickets to the reception range from $500 as the minimum to $1,000 as the “suggested” contribution.

Zeldin, a state senator from Suffolk County, is one of two Republicans vying for the chance to take on incumbent Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop in what is expected to be a closely watched race next year.
