Two clear winners emerged in the Democratic and Republican gubernatorial primaries on Tuesday.

On the Democratic side Governor Kathy Hochul successfully fought off challengers Jumaane Williams and Tom Suozzi.  Williams currently serves as the New York City Public Advocate.  Rep. Thomas Suozzi currently serves in the United States Congress representing Long Island and Queens.

Hochul is looking to win her first full four-year term since attaining office following the resignation of former Governor Andrew Cuomo.  Zeldin is trying to become the first Republican governor of New York in years.  The state has not had a Republican governor since Governor George Pataki was in office from 1995 to 2006.

Both former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino stumped in Utica earlier this month.  Giuliani came in support of his son and Astorino stopped at the Townsquare Media studios to make an appearance on WIBX.


Election Day is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
