Hochul wins Democratic primary for governor

Kathy Hochul defeated Rep. Tom Suozzi and city public advocate Jumaane Williams to win the Democratic primary for Governor of New York. In a tweet posted on her Twitter account, Hochul reacted to her win.

“It’s the honor of my life serving as your Governor, New York. I’m humbled to accept the Democratic nomination and continue fighting to move our state forward—together.”

Hochul will face Republican nominee Lee Zeldin in the general election in November.
